The Link Story
Designed by Peter Stathis in collaboration with Pablo Studio, Link modernizes the classic pantograph task lamp.
This new articulation reduces the mechanical complexity of its 1937 referent and incorporates todays most advanced,
energy efficient LED technology. While honoring the pantograph concept, its design eliminates visible springs and
wires in favor of a consolidated form in which shade and handle are fused together as one. In this way, Link seamlessly
balances performance and style to meet the focused lighting needs of any space. Its wide range of models includes
both small and medium lamp bodies that can be fitted over table, floor, clamp, and wall-mounted base options for
residential, office and hospitality settings.
Fun and Functional:
Link is practical and fun, striking a clever
balance between performance and style.
Fusing a dual-purposed shade and handle, Link combines
high-output LEDs with an integrated hi-low switch
strategically placed for single-handed use.
The wide range of versatile colors offered makes the Link
family ideal for home and contract applications.
USB Port Add-on:
Allows for convenient charging for any mobile device

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.”
