Christophe Mathieu has designed Spock-A, a wall version of his Spock table light, for Bover. Its obvious use is as pictured — as a bedside light. Typically, LED lights for this application are on a bendy arm and have a bullet-shaped head. Two problems are created (both of which this design overcomes). First, the bendy arms stop holding their position after a while and, secondly, the beam angle from the bullet head tends to be too narrow (and often not bright enough).
You can see from the image above that the LEDs in Spock-A are laid out in a row, which will create a large puddle of light. And the structure is strong — it may have less of a range of movement than a bendy arm, but it will stay where it is put!
There is a proper, satisfying switch on the base. Note that there are almost no LED beside reading lights that have a switch on the head, so always plan for the person abed to be able to reach the switch on the backplate, or install a separate switch.
Here are Spock-A’s vital statistics (no measurements for Spock’s ears though….)
It comes in nickel or chrome of chrome+white or chrome+graphite.
The table version of Spock (Spock-T) was introduced in 2007:
Then there is a very neat lettura — a floor-standing reading light (Spock-P):
