Timp is a desk lamp by German-based industrial designer Lutz Pankow for Pliet. It is designed with extreme efficiency by using only 21W, is dimmable and creates a crisp, clean light that illuminates without any reflection. Being produced in 3 types of solid wood, it can be adjusted to secure to any table thickness between 10-60mm and the spread and amount of light is optimized in its fixed height from the surface of the desk.
The proportions and geometry of the Timp lamp are not only so simple and pleasing to look at, but the use of wood as material in desk lamps is rather rare. What I appreciate most of Pankow’s design is improving the function of an essential task light and minimizing the cumbersome wire-pulling over the desk while producing a beautiful, elegant object.
