Designer Peter Bristol and Juniper have partnered to develop THIN, an innovative task light designed for the way we live today. The boundaries between the office and the home are quickly disappearing, and with it so are the boundaries between performance and design.

So we devised the THIN: a powerful, precision-machined LED task lamp made from hand-finished old-world materials.

It’s thin profile is contemporary, while brass details and tubing combined with a cast iron base create a timeless and friendly feel. The lamp’s slender arms stretch across a work surface without taking it over, and the mounted ball joint and spring-less hinge enable 360 degree movement, while also allowing the lamp to reduce into a minimal vertical profile.


The THIN lamp’s full rotational range makes it possible to fold and reduce the lamp into a nearly invisible profile. Model T table lamp (27″ tall) in Raw Brass shown.


Available in two table-top sizes – both ultra-slim and slender. Partially extended Model T (27″ tall) in black oxide and Model S (22″ tall) in Satin Nickel shown.  Electrical cords not shown.

The THIN Family

Based on the THIN’s early success, we have expanded the THIN collection with the launch of the THIN floor lamp and wall mounted versions.

The Wall Mount may be the most natural incarnation of the THIN Lamp.  With its long reach and rotating dimmer at the tip of the lamp, the THIN makes for an obviously functional and elegant bedside lamp.

At 58″ in height the Floor Lamp can be be rotated and pivoted to provide reading, accent or ambient light in various different settings.

We found that white and brass make for a beautiful combination.  With that we introduced a gloss white finish with brass hardware as part of our 2016 collection.  We also launched the desk inset that can be fitted in virtually any desktop and carries the minimal profile all the way through the base of the base of the lamp.

The devil in the details


Smooth multi-directional ball joint offers 360 degree movement and allows the lamp to extend over a large work surface.


A solid, unmovable, cast iron base keeps THIN planted, calling back to the classic light bulb socket.


Elegant dimmer knob at the tip of the lamp provides continuous control of light up to 500 lumens.


Proprietary spring-less hinge makes for continuous-force motion along a 270 degree angle. THIN can be closed and tucked away or extended to cast accent lighting on a wall or ceiling.
