If you've always wanted to have an alien friend watch you do homework or balance your checking account the Blink Desk Lamp is about as close as you're likely to get. Its rotund chrome-finished shade is a guaranteed conversation starter but it's also as practical and versatile as a Swiss Army knife. The shade can be adjusted to a height of 13 to 18 inches and pointed up or down for task lighting or mood lighting. Or you can remove the shade entirely and use it as a bulbous flashlight. The Blink operates with a single one-watt LED bulb (included). Its on/off toggle switch is located on the shade. A cloth-textured cord and flat-bottomed ball-shaped base add to the lamp's unique look. You won' find another desk lamp like it.About Adesso LightingAdesso was established in 1994 based on the belief that there was an under-served niche among consumers who sought high-end contemporary home products at moderate prices.
