Let’s be precise. That’s the thinking behind the Brazo Table Lamp from San Francisco’s Pablo Designs. Effortlessly, the beam of light can be aimed 360 degrees in any direction by a twist of the aluminum shade. Height adjustable, with arm-tilt range to 90 degrees and finely calibrated light-focus control, Brazo is equal to any task. LED technology provides 50K hours of energy-efficient and maintenance-free illumination and the lamp’s materials are 97% recyclable. Not to mention designer Pablo Pardo’s corresponding exactitude in conceiving this strikingly linear style.
“Lighting is undergoing a revolution at the moment,” says Venezuelan-born designer/entrepreneur Pablo Pardo, who’s leading the disruption with the mix of cutting-edge technology and always-cool minimalism behind his signal brand Pablo. As he puts it, nowadays, “you can build smarts right into the lamp.” Internationally recognized, the San Francisco company was started 20-odd years ago and now Pablo racks up design awards regularly for its more than 40 technology-driven and elegantly sparse collections worldwide.
The lighting industry thought-leader credits his upbringing in a family of artists and engineers for the always forward-facing Pablo style, which embraces innovations such as LEDs and flat-panel light. “Lighting is also shrinking in size: LEDs are so small that you can put them almost anywhere,” he adds. “So the standard iconography of a lamp with a shade is being upended.”
