Like an air nozzle seen on a jetliner, this LED reading light is based on a 360-degree, compass-type joint which allows the light to easily point in any direction. Veteran lighting designer Joan Gaspar's clean-lined Ledcompass is easy and intuitive to use with an integrated on/off rocker switch at the base. LED technology means the fixture stays cool to the touch while being adjusted. Available in 2 versions, the injected-aluminum light comes in either a flush-to-the-wall model or as a surface-mounted fixture.

“Marset is more than lamps: We take care of light in its different nuances and effects, to create atmospheres with character, helping to improve people’s quality of life,” declares the Barcelona-based company. Marset’s dual preoccupation with both crisp contemporary design and the more elusive ambiance of lighting has firmly fixed the firm on the design world’s cutting-edge radar. A series of attention-grabbing and innovative fixtures account for the recent revitalization of the brand, though Marset has actually been around since the 1940s.
A family business, Marset was originally a foundry, not a lighting company. It segued into lighting design when Francisco Marset formally established Marset Illuminacion in 1965. Decades devoted to metalwork easily translated to the contemporary lighting industry, with a dexterity of materials available to create unexpected, atmospheric lighting effects. Not to mention the influence of its Barcelona home, a city renowned for architecture, design and visual inspiration.
