The PLUSminus Lamp is Elegant and Versatile

Reading lamps often sacrifice aesthetics in service of functionality, but the PLUSminus lamp from designer Matej Stefanac shows that form need not always follow function -- sometimes, the two can be tightly linked. The lamp adheres to the tenets of modern minimalist design, but it uses its simple frame to create a simple mechanism for varying across three axes, making it as useful as it is attractive.

The PLUSminus lamp is so named because of its shape, which is like a large plus sign. The steel arms of that sign are clean, making it reminiscent of mid-century Scandinavian lighting, but they also allow the user to adjust the lamp vertically, horizontally, and rotationally, making it easy to change one's desk workflow.
