Piccolo LED Task Light You spent a lot of time curating the thinnest, most stylish items to place on your desk — don't ruin the effect by lighting it all with a behemoth of a lamp. It should blend perfectly into such an environment. Crafted from anodized aluminum, the Piccolo's body is less than half an inch in diameter, and supplies plenty of warm light with a touch switch for dimming things down a bit. Don't have an outlet nearby? Not to worry, as it can run on USB power.
