D’E-Light Lamp by Philippe Starck

In addition to being an awesome ’90s house band, D’E-Light is a new task lamp from the Italian lighting manufacturer Flos that houses a USB socket above the light diffuser to charge and display an iPod, iPad, or iPhone.

The HandStand for the original iPad only comes in black, but the new version for the iPad 2 comes in black, white, or pink. Available at thehandstand.com for …
