Whether in the darkest reaches of the galaxy or just in your own home, the Access Lighting Satellite Table Touch Lamp is able to provide bright, energy efficient light. Its design is simple, sleek and a little space-age, with a tapered column of brushed steel topped by a glass shade. The wide flare of the shade and its frosted texture help it to diffuse glare-free LED light in all directions. Adding to the cool factor is the control: simply tap the steel disc on top to turn the light on or off.

The Satellite is also entirely portable. It’s only 8 inches tall and powered by three AA batteries, which allow for up to 38 hours of continuous use. So you can be sure that whoever gets this lamp as a gift can take it to infinity and beyond (if they want).
