Designer: Pablo Pardo, 2002

The Gloss Story
Gloss represents a new iteration of the iconic stem-and-base shaded lamp. Adding dynamic movement to the original form, this hybrid design enables a user to direct two separate shades independently to create focused and ambient light. Newly reimagined with LED technology, Gloss is an innovatively simple hybrid design that allows you to direct dual-focused light sources to serve both ambient and task needs independently. Gloss’s bulbs are clearly displayed through their transparent twin acrylic shades and can be positioned to any desired angle and height. Best suited for desk, bedside, or living area.

The Gloss lamp features a full-range dimmer, an aluminum tube/base set and a polycarbonate shade in clear, blue, orange or bronze. Available in floor or table model.

The Pablo Philosophy
The interpretation of light in its many forms, refined design solutions, and a distinctive timeless style; these are the underlying elements of Pablo's design mission. Pablo believes that the right light can transform any environment and is committed to creating lasting solutions that provide a lifetime of illumination.

Pablo’s designs have been propelled to the forefront of American contemporary lighting by an uncompromising devotion to simplicity and utility. By fusing the highest technical sensibilities with the most appropriate material palette, Pablo is able to create unique, timeless designs with the power to transform any environment. Pablo was founded in San Francisco in 1993 by Venezuelan-born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Embracing a less-is-more ideology, Pablo frequently challenges traditional design metaphors, developing more practical solutions distilled down to their essence, form and light. A common thread links all of its creations, valuing permanence and sustainability, the disposable mindset so prevalent today. Its mission is to create designs that deepen the relationship between objects, their users, and their environments.

Over 25 Years of Design
With the creation of his first product in 1993, Pablo established a powerful and generative design philosophy. Since then, his core principles have informed the development of every light in the studio’s 25-year history. These products continue to move with culture while withstanding trends in design — and each one carries the underlying uniqueness that is distinctly “Pablo.”
