Maximum function in minimalist form—and using minimal energy. Pixo can fluidly rotate 360 degrees both at the head and stem, for a glare-free focus of warm light: just 6 watts of power—making it 90% more efficient than a comparable halogen light source and 40% more efficient than CFLs. One Pixo lasts for 50k hours or 25 years of daily use! If that weren't enough in a task lamp, the base features a USB port to charge mobile devices. And 97 percent of materials that went into making a single Pixo are recyclable making it an environmentalist dream.
For good reason, Red Dot awarded Pixo its 2012 award. Venezuelan-born industrial designer Fernando Pardo designed the light for his twin brother Pablo Pardo, founding namesake of the San Francisco-based Pablo Designs founded in 1993. The mission: "to create designs that deepen the relationship between objects, their users, and their environments." Pixo achieves that without a hitch.
