Made from LEDs and recyclable aluminum, Pablo Pardo’s innovative Brazo Floor Lamp (2006) uses the same body as his Brazo Table Lamp, but with an extension piece for added height. The first LED light to feature an optical film lens for focus control, Brazo provides both a variable beam spread and focused directional light. In the shape of an inverted “L,” Brazo’s top arm lets you turn an outer aluminum layer over the white LEDs to focus the light as much or as little as is desired. This energy-efficient lighting solution is 97% recyclable. Made in China.
The top piece freely rotates and also tilts up to 90 degrees.
Height adjustable with a dimmer knob.
Uses 18 high-output LEDs, which have an estimated life of 20 years with normal use.
The simple, svelte Brazo won the 2007 Best of Competition Award at the Neocon Contract Furniture Exposition – a first for a lighting design.
In the mid 1990s, a lamp by Pablo began appearing in hip restaurants in San Francisco and New York. Composed of a tear-drop, cast aluminum body and a sandblasted shade, the Sophie Lamp turned an ordinary table top into a dreamscape for intimate conversations. Coming from a family of designers, the work of Venezuelan-born Pablo Pardo is deceptively simple, often made from no more than a couple of materials, beautifully crafted and devoid of superflous details. Once in use, however, Pablo's lamps take on a new character that is much more experiential than simply visual. It is the experience rather than the look of an object that Pablo sought in his designs.
