Lamps have come a long way from a rudi­men­tary, sin­gle light bulb af­fixed to a stand with a shade. To­day, smart en­gi­neer­ing has re­sulted in lamps that not only pro­vide ba­sic il­lu­mi­na­tion, but are also adapt­able, stylish, and more ef­fi­cient than be­fore. The shift to LED, along with the de­vel­op­ment of new tech­nolo­gies and in­no­va­tive ma­te­ri­als, has also al­lowed de­sign­ers to cre­ate light­ing that’s gen­tler on the eyes, and more user-friendly for mod­ern home­own­ers. Top picks also in­clude mul­ti­func­tional lamps that pro­vide a source of light while dou­bling up as a fur­ni­ture piece or an ac­ces­sory. From mod­u­lar sys­tems to lamps that pro­vide both light and acous­tic in­su­la­tion, we scoured the mar­ket for some of the clever­est prod­ucts avail­able. Here are 10 spiffy lamps that com­bine the best of form and func­tion.

DESK BUDDY When he was a stu­dent at the Royal Dan­ish Acad­emy of Fine Arts in Copen­hagen in 2015, Dan­ish de­signer Mads Sæt­terLassen cre­ated the Buddy lamp, which won the North­ern Light­ing Stu­dent De­sign Award. This cute, com­pact lamp comes with a multi-di­rec­tional shade, and is equipped with a con­tainer for pens, sta­tionery, keys or loose change to help busy stu­dents, artists and of­fice work­ers keep their desk clut­ter-free. Sæt­terLassen de­scribes Buddy as “the lit­tle helper ev­ery­one needs”.
