JAX Touch Smart USB Task Lamp
Creating anything takes time, energy, and attention. We made the JAX Touch Smart USB Task Lamp with creators in mind. Our goal was to consolidate light, power, and portability into a design enabling optimum productivity, minimizing distraction.
Integrating traditional materials with advanced technology we are able to create better experience through design. We call this our timeless design, modern technology approach.
Inside the JAX Touch we combined capacitive sensing with a hand-hammered brass rivet and leather backing to create the light control touch sensor switch. The Smart Chip USB ports are forward compatible with the USB 3.0 standard and are contained in a cast aluminum and stainless steel housing held together with brass machine bolts, marrying the function you need with the form reflecting reverence for fine materials.
The spun stainless steel shade is connected to a brass collar that rotates 360° and pivots 180° for directional focused light for any activity – from soldering and sketching to reading. The angled neck is designed to be fixed, without articulation, so you can easily move it wherever you need it, and it will never flop or flex.
We source parts from manufacturers in small towns across the country to support jobs where they need it most. The bent tubing, spun shade, brass accents and leather are sourced from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois to support jobs in places that need it most. Wire braiding, termination, finishing and hand-assembly is done in our factory in Los Angeles.
