Telescoping Task Lamp Disappears Into Your Desk

You'll have to cut a hole in your desk to install this retracting Levity task light. But that minor inconvenience is worth it for a lamp that's completely non-intrusive when you don't need it.

When you first pull on the cap it automatically raises four-and-a-half inches, illuminating a set of built-in power outlets for your charging convenience. But the lamp can be further extended to a full height of 21-inches, and angled to wherever you need it. Now the Levity unfortunately isn't as portable as the BE Light we brought you a few days ago, but at $517 it's oddly just as expensive. Did the price of LEDs recently skyrocket? [Byrne via Freshome]
