The Luxo lamp (vintage)
Designer: Jac Jabobsen
Directors: Guy Hamilton, John Lasseter
The Luxo task lamp L1 (derived from Latin – I give light) designed by Jac Jacobsen was the original inspiration behind the Pixar lamp as seen in the production ident at the beginning of all their films and in the film ‘Luxo Jr’ – the Pixar 1986 short film. It also makes a cameo (in red) in Toy Story 2 being as those Pixar folk like to sneak in references and easter eggs to their other films.
Luxo lamps also appear in classics such as the Bond film Diamonds Are Forever.
This lamp is proof that good design is timeless. The classic Luxo lamp is the forerunner of all articulated self-balancing luminaires.
A traditional and popular symmetrical luminaire for offices, industry and your home, the L1’s unique, versatile design features a flexible spring balanced arm, which allows for graceful positioning and direction of light.
