Pablo Pardo has furthered the utility of his Light Table Bench 52 (2004) with a dimmable version, available only at DWR. The dimmer provides the user with a wider array of lighting options and makes the Light Table Bench easily adaptable to any setting. Use it in an entryway or lounge. Objects placed on the Light Table Bench are softly illuminated with indirect light, which is especially effective for transparent or translucent objects. Used in multiples and placed in a row, the benches create a continuous runway of light. The work of Pablo Pardo and his San Francisco-based studio is widely recognized for creating unique, simple items that combine technical sensibilities with the most appropriate materials. For the Light Table Bench, these materials include an acrylic white translucent top and clear support ends. Weight capacity 400lbs. Bulbs (included): two fluorescent 32W/Med Bi-Pin/3000k/120V/T-8. Made in U.S.A.

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.
