The desk lamp has morphed into an overly complex-looking object that really need not be so. For this reason, it's refreshing to see the way that the Egola Lamp can support one's hardworking habits with a light foot and a minimalist appearance.

Braced by a delicate V-shaped base, Valentina Carretta's piece takes up negligible space on a cluttered desk and its modest and rational aesthetic does not compete with the mess, rather inspiring a system of orderliness and organization.

Designed to block the lightbulb's bright glow from reaching the eyes of the sitter, the Egola Lamp has an open triangular lampshade to cast a beam of light onto the desktop below. It would function well on large library tables, able to illuminate books on both sides equally.
