  • One of the defining features of Polar is its articulating arm, The pivoting action of the arm gives the user the ability to swivel the disk in a 180 degree angle, allowing the light output to be directed as desired. The arm is magnetically attached to the base and uses a friction disk to hold it in place.

  • Perfectly designed to beautifully house all the required components of the lamp, the ceramic base is not only functional but a work of art. The locally crafted base is made by hand, using traditional slip casting techniques. To create a soft, matt finish, the surface is bisque fired and left unglazed.

  • Small details are what make the Polar Desk Lamp so unique. The gold anodised bolt head that acts as a pivot point for the rotating arm is a beautiful example of precision engineering. The same bolt can be found again on the underside of the lamp and acts as an anchor to the internal components.

  • The Polar Desk Lamp is collectively made by manufacturers located in and around Melbourne, Australia. Featuring a 6W LED 3000k warm white globes, the light output is highly efficient and long lasting, with a rating of 20,000 hours.
