The Lim Story
A study in reductionism, Lim is not so much a lamp as it is a conduit of
light. Its minimalist form shapes a plane of illumination powered by an
equally minimalist light source — a continuous array of high-output,
energy-efficient LEDs discreetly concealed in its armature. Along
with a slim, rotatable arm that enables the user to redirect the
light, Lim employs a magnetic attachment system that makes it
effortlessly portable and adjustable.
LIM is offered in multiple pivot platform models which include LIM L Table, LIM L Floor, and
LIM C Undersurface Mount. They all utilize an ultra-slim extrusion profile arm with magnetic
attachment. LIM Floor can be specified using multiple arms to provide both maximum
light coverage and varying light height capability. LIM C is a remarkable display of less
is more, allowing for undersurface mounting to free up valuable tabletop real estate.

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.”
