Konica Minolta [1]‘s new Symfos LED Tasklight [2] features a built-in pad that can wirelessly charge your mobile phone! The new lamp shows how everyday products can be transformed into brilliant multi-use gadgets. In addition to its function as a wireless charger, the lamp has a sensor that enables the user to switch between four brightness settings.

Konica Minolta [1]‘s Symfos Tasklight [2] is designed to provide optimal glare-free lighting. It allows for a precise control of light, so it can illuminate a workspace without flickering and casting multiple shadows (typical of some LED lights). According to Konica Minolta’s specifications, it provides brightness up to 1,400 lux while keeping power use to a minimum – the electricity bill for 12 hours at 630 lux mode is only a single cent.

At a price of 24,800 yen ($302), the 1.5-foot-tall lamp may be too costly for most. However, its diverse functions and minimalist design [3], along with innovative charging options, make it the first of its kind. It is available in two colors: ivory and a dark shade of blue.
