Designed to look like a massive construction site digger, this imposing 4m tall lamp will tower over your desk and everything else in your office. Designed by Pascal Howe, The Worker has a definite industrial charm to it, particularly if you grew up staring in awe at the massive yellow machinery that's used to build towering skyscrapers.
A set of LEDs wrapped around its faux-cutting head provide enough light to get any task done, and it's long articulated arm can reach almost all the way across a room. Which is important, because this thing looks harder to move than a crane.
