The Italian lighting firm Flos has puts its black D'E-light desk lamp on sale at 50% off through Dec. 31. The design, by Philippe Starck, has a backrest and USB socket to charge an iPad, iPhone or iPad. The touch-sensitive LEDs can change intensity from 100% to 50% to off with one finger. Regularly $395, the black lamp is on sale for $199. The design also comes in chrome, but only the black matte finish is on sale, through the Flos showroom in L.A. (part of the Diva Group) or online.
For those who are curious, you can see the chrome version in our coverage of the 2011 Milan furniture fair, where a prototype (then called the Net lamp) premiered.
