And beautiful: well, that is thanks to an excellent designer, Ron Gilad, at the top of his game -- the dimensions, the curves, the lines, the proportions....

Green has been traditionally used in this context because it was deemed the colour most restful to the eyes. But if you would prefer more subdued finishes in these recessionary times, Flos also do a cool version in black chrome with a fumé diffuser:

Instead of the chain traditionally used, there is an optical switch on the base, dimmable with "Soft Touch" technology -- so even the act of turning Goldman on and off is quietly satisfying.

And you don't only have to use it on your desk! Here is a couple of Goldmans lighting a display of expensive phones:
