Design by Stephan Copeland.
The Copeland Light™ integrates design dexterity with workplace needs at an affordable price. Efficient use of materials, a pioneering spring mechanism and a novel dual-mode head create Copeland's fluid movement and streamlined profile.
The Copeland Light's™ "dual-mode" lamp head, when turned upside-down, emits a smaller pool of light downward and aesthetic ambient light upward from the same bulb. An energy efficient compact fluorescent light lasts longer and emits less heat than standard incandescent bulbs. Yet there is still flexibility to replace that bulb with an incandescent bulb if desired. Two hinges resembling spoke-less bicycle wheels enable a broad range of movement allowing users to position light where it is most needed, thereby limiting eye strain and general discomfort for the user.
Standard base can be used with standard arm only. Compact base can be used with compact arm only. The table clamp can be used with either size arm and works on desks of up to 1.75" thick.
Copeland is available in two sizes, Compact and Standard, in Black or Silver. And it mounts on a base, table clamp, panel mount, slat wall mount or grommet mount. See options and further details listed below.
Standard light ships with a 15-watt compact fluorescent light bulb (included). This is the equivalent light output of a 75-watt incandescent light bulb. An incandescent light bulb can also be used (75-watt maximum, not included). Compact light ships with a 13-watt compact fluorescent light bulb. This is the equivalent light output of a 60-watt incandescent light bulb. A "ceiling fan" incandescent bulb can also be used (60-watt maximum, not included).
Material(s): Steel arm, aluminum axles, zinc coated cast iron base and metallic-painted ABS shade

Problems With Shipping
By: Justin, Homeowner (PA)
I would love to give a review of the product, but I am unable to because it has not arrived. However, the table clamp I ordered did, but the lamp itself was missing. We called the folks at Y living and told them of this problem, but they never called back with any information. So three stars because I cannot tell if the lamp is good or bad at this point. Y living should improve communications between their offices and the warehouse.
Looks cool, feels a bit cheap
By: Tommy S., Homeowner (NYC)
Doesn't have the solid heft you'd want. Instead, seems to be made of cheap plastic. Looks cool, though. The desk clamp contraption I have seems a bit overwrought.
Knoll Copeland lamp is a great looking lamp
By: Ken, Homeowner (Sacramento, CA)
Actually, the Knoll Copeland lamp is not only a great looking lamp but also a very functional lamp. It is very sturdy and the material used is excellent. It looks like a piece of art sitting on my desk. Highly recommend it.
Flimsy, Made in China, Poor alignment
By: Robert L., Homeowner (Weston, CT)
I was expecting a contract quality lamp but this product is more like something you'd find in a big box store. Mostly plastic construction, not very aligned and imprecise adjustment. Works, but not up to Knoll standards.
Pleasing design and function; excellent task or ambient light.
By: Donald E., Homeowner (Oklahoma City, OK)
I love Knoll designs and quality. I prefer the longer reach and height of the Regular Copeland at my executive desk and prefer the Compact Copeland at a cubicle or task table. The lamp will take CFL (included) or LED A-19 bulbs, so no need to spend twice as much for a dedicated-LED table lamp.
Nice compact, versatile light. Get the base!
By: Barbara, Homeowner (new york, ny)
I bought the compact copeland light with the base. Overall I'm very happy with it. It fits well into the small space I have for it and it adjusts to different positions very easily. I especially like being able to rotate the light shade for a more diffused light as the CFL that came with it is very bright. Cons: i found the underside of the top arm to feel a little unfinished. CFL is very bright wish the shade was a little more substantial and not plastic--i realize it would heat up more if it were not plastic
A stylish, plus highly adjustable lamp.
By: Greg , Renter (Hillsboro, OR, USA)
I appreciate the form, plus function of this desk lamp. The lamp looks good on my desk, and is easy to adjust to the tasks at hand. The lamp head and base move with ease when needed and the movement is very fluid. I could not be happier with my purchase.
THe lamp looked great, however...........
By: Mamma B., Homeowner (New York, NY)
putting the whole product together is apparently very complicated and yliving never told me they had the lamp but not the base, so i am returning it. getting a light shouldn't be this complicated.
By: Tom K., Renter (Rocklin, CA)
The lamp does not include a base. If you can figure out how to use this lamp without the base you will have no problem. Otherwise it is a useless piece of crap.
I was so pleased and impressed with my first Copeland lamp that I ordered a second one.
By: Sara L., Designer (New York)
This lamp is so well designed that it fits into any decor without standing out as too modern. It is a classic look, something pleasingly soft about the shape, yet it is metal and sleek. There are enough articulation points that you can always find just the perfect angle, and the shade swivels upward for less direct light. The only missing detail is a dimmer. Wish there was one.
