If you’ve gone to college, or are of a certain age, or do a lot of work on a drafting or drawing table, then you know the agony of trying to find a decent adjustable lamp. The springs, the cantilevers, the cranky clamps to hold it to the surface–it’s a pain in the neck. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never found a decent adjustable lamp. So maybe the Harvey lamp is what I need.

From the Creatives: Harvey LED task lamp combines state of the art LED lighting with a unique new fully adjustable joint.
Firstly the light; inspired by surgeons lamps, super bright LEDs are fixed on an aluminium heat sink in the centre of the head, light is diffused through a frosted glass disc and reflected off the curved metal reflector giving a well-directed even light source (avoiding the harshness often associated with LED lighting). The lamp is named after William Harvey, the English physician who described completely the circulation of blood in the body.
The joints; precision die-cast aluminium with neodymium magnets housed inside, they allow a massive range of movement with a light touch. Simply twist, push or pull the head to where you need more light, that’s it, the joints hold firm, no springs, no cantilevers.
In some situations super bright is not always best, a dimmer is included so Harvey is at home in the home.
