Pixo Optical Task Light + USB Charging Port

Designed by Fernando Pardo for Pablo Designs

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.
