DeskSpace Solar Mood Lamp - Bring The Power of the Sun Into Your Home

The sun is the most beautiful and powerful force in our solar system. It represents life and brings joy into our day. We have recreated this life force with our Sun Mood Lamp. Created using Golden Calcite - prized for its mesmerising texture and clarity - to allow the light to spread within the sphere and to radiate into the room. We create each piece individually, ensuring yours is as unique as you are. We handcraft each set and polish it to perfection. Bring the sun into your home and capture a small part of that power.

A perfect gift for a friend or loved one

The DeskSpace Sun Mood Lamp is both beautiful and stylish and makes the most wonderful timeless gift that can last a lifetime. The soft glow is ideal for bedrooms, to create an ambient environment in a lounge or a perfect desktop accompaniment to enhance any workspace. Most of us have looked to the sky and marvelled at the natural force that brings us warmth and light - imagine having that offered as a gift?

Stylish and sophisticated accessory for the home and office

The soft and warm light that emanates from our Solar Mood Lamp is ideal for any room or workspace. Without overpowering the senses, this light is visually striking and will create a gentle glow in any room. Perfect as a subtle night light for the bedside table or to capture the beauty of your desk accessories or a row of books on your shelf. It is more than just light - this is a room-enhancing glow that gives a sense of relaxation and peace.

                

Beautiful and Touchably Smooth - A Long Journey to the Right Material

How to capture the beauty and brightness of the Sun? We worked tirelessly to source the exact material that would showcase the unique way that the sun emits light. The material needed to be able to both encase the light and emit it gently and evenly. Our worldwide search resulted in Golden Calcite - a unique crystalline structure with a translucent appearance that has a softness and warmth that we could not find in any other material. When the light is not turned on, this globe is a stunning accessory for your room. However, switch on the light and the gemstone comes to life creating a focal point that will draw the eye and relax the soul. With a smooth surface that simply calls out to be touched, this is a creative gift that will win the hearts of all.

DeskSpace: Contemporary - Modern Style for the Modern Home

The Solar Lamp is the first product in our new contemporary range creating a more modern feel using metal instead of hardwood. The new contemporary range combined with our classic range means DeskSpace can fit perfectly into any style of home or working environment. We started to make this distinction with the base, which uses aerospace grade aluminium that has been anodised to a Deep Space Grey. The highly mirrored finish of the logo perfectly sets the tone for this piece and the added technology of a bespoke magnetic charging cable (also anodised to match the base) gives you the discretion you need. We never want to detract from the gemstone and therefore discrete technology that is as beautiful and minimalist as the piece itself is important to us. We know it is important to you, as well.

A DeskSpace Mood Lamp to Meet All Your Needs

We believe that our products should fit with your lifestyle and be individualised to your requirements. We offer the Solar Mood Lamp in three different sizes to suit any space and each can have the LED lighting adjusted to fit your mood. The illumination can range from a soft mood light to a brighter focal point - but always the Golden Calcite ensures the light is diffused and softened.

Large 8cm +/- 0.5cm | Medium 6cm +/- 0.5cm | Small 4cm +/- 0.5cm
Large 8cm +/- 0.5cm | Medium 6cm +/- 0.5cm | Small 4cm +/- 0.5cm
               

Build Your Knowledge of the Universe

Here at DeskSpace, we love to offer a little extra. When you buy your Solar Mood Lamp, we also give you a high quality, heavyweight booklet full of interesting and sometimes, intriguing facts about the Sun. Filled with detailed images, this book is the perfect addition to the light. Our base design allows for the book to nestle inside, so you always know where to find it. If you have someone in your life who loves space, this is the perfect combination gift.

From Our Minds and Into Your Home

The Sun was not created overnight and neither is our DesSpace Solar Mood Lamp - in fact we spend a very long time perfecting the shape and the glow so that you can delight in the quality. Our craftspeople hand shape every piece of gemstone into a perfect sphere before carefully polishing it to a glass-like shimmer. This takes time, but getting it right is not worth rushing.


  • We use Golden Calcite that is mined in Mexico. We choose only those mines that are sympathetic to the environment and where the material is in plentiful supply.
  • Each raw gemstone is then washed to prepare for the next stage of processing.
  • We use high quality diamond edge saws to cut each gemstone into smaller cubes according to the small, medium and large sizes that we offer.
  • Our craftsmen now shape each cube, by hand, into a sphere using a diamond grit grinding wheel. The shape is achieved by eye and takes the work of a true experienced and dedicated craftsman.
  • The spheres now go through our grading and measuring process and any that are not perfect are rejected.
  • A final grinding is used to achieve a final perfect shape, before each stone is polished on a buffing wheel. The individual shine and glow of each stone is now revealed.
  • We now prepare the bases using a Tungsten tipped cutting tool. We send these for anodising to achieve the Deep Space Grey colour.
  • Using a special process of polishing, masking and sandblasting we are able to achieve a highly mirrored DeskSpace logo against a modern matte grey finish.

A Gift That You’ll be Proud to Give 

We know that the unboxing of any gift is part of the experience and we have designed our presentation box with the unwrapping in mind. We use only the highest quality rigid gift box and we protect every element with layers of EVA foam. The bespoke magnetic cable, information booklet, cleaning cloth and letter of authenticity (including a unique serial number) set off the gift perfectly - allowing the receiver to uncover more and more layers of excitement as they delve deeper.


  • Handcrafted Golden Calcite Sphere
  • Custom made CNC metal base from Aerospace grade Aluminium
  • Magnetic USB charging cable
  • Information booklet about the Sun and our Solar System
  • Letter of Authenticity with unique serial number
  • DeskSpace branded felt polishing cloth
  • Separate inner boxes layer with EVA to protect the Gemstone and metal base 

Contemporary DeskSpace – Gemstone Solar System Set (Limited Edition Preview)

DeskSpace is a company that revels in all things “space”. Our Solar Mood Lamp is just one of our products - we also offer the stunning DeskSpace Solar System Set. This new set is a step forward from our original Solar System set as it features our bespoke anodised aluminium base and therefore works perfectly as a matching item with the Solar Mood Lamp. The Solar System Set is currently available in a limited run to be purchased alongside the large Solar Sun Mood Lamp - we suggest getting in early to get your hands on these first sets before they are fully released.

DeskSpace - Solar Sun Classic

Perfect for anyone who prefers a minimalist, artisanal approach. The Solar Sun Classic comes with a solid Walnut wooden base that matches perfectly with the original DeskSpace - Planetary System Set. Each gemstone is highlighted for its original beauty and will look stunning on the classically designed wooden stands provided. Championing the unique materials in a timeless design the Classic collection does with cables and electronics, therefore it has no light functionality.

 


Metal Base Upgrade for Existing Customers

We are also offering our original Kickstarter supporters the metal base from the upcoming Solar System Set for the discounted price of $29 if you wish to upgrade. This will be available to be purchased separately on our store after the campaign has finished.

The DeskSpace Community

Here's a small sample of the hundreds of positive comments left by some of our thousands of happy customers.

Stretch Goals

Thank You For Making DeskSpace a Reality

We would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts and we couldn't have made DeskSpace without your initial support. It's been an exciting and sometimes gruelling (assembling the first 1,500 units by hand) journey this past year, but all the time and effort has been worth it a thousand times over. It is still just the three of us working on this tirelessly and we want to make sure every product we release is the best possible product it can be. As we've grown as a company we've relied on the continued support of our craftspeople, manufacturing and distribution partners, and most importantly from each of our life partners. We try our absolute best to ensure everyone is 100% satisfied with their product and we will rectify any issue you have to make sure you get the perfect piece that will last you decades to come.

The DeskSpace 100% Satisfaction Guarantee  

At DeskX we pride ourselves on quality and have hundreds of positive reviews piling up from the launch of our first product. We want to make sure you are 100% happy with your DeskSpace products. If you feel there are any issues with your product you can contact us directly at support@deskx.co and we will be there to help resolve any issues until you're completely satisfied. 

Please note however that our gemstones are products of the nature. Therefore variations in color, pattern, texture and veining from piece to piece are unavoidable. No two pieces will be exactly alike, this is what makes your DeskSpace completely unique. These differences and variations create the beauty of natural handcrafted gemstones. 

We try our absolute best to match each gemstone as closely as possible as the samples shown online, but these are put in place to give you a general idea about the appearance of each of the gemstones. Please note that changes in lighting may cause the products to look slightly different in real life than those shown in images online and that multiple orders of the same item might not be an exact match.

Risks and challenges

Since the successful launch of our first product, the DeskSpace Solar System set we've become an established company with reliable vendors and hundreds of positive reviews from happy customers so there isn't much of a risk in backing the Sun Mood Lamp. Our materials have already been sourced, and have people on the ground to oversee the pre-production runs to make sure everything goes smoothly.

The only remaining risk to backers is that of schedule. A range of issues can arise during the handcrafting of the gemstones as each is selected and shaped by hand. Only once a significant amount of time has been spent on shaping can our craftspeople tell if this gemstone meets our standards. Due to the natural nature of gemstones we can't predict with complete accuracy the time and scrappage rates. If something arises that will take time to fix or rework will opt to push the schedule back slightly to make sure it's done right over shipping a substandard product. We will be in constant communication with you throughout the production process and you will been informed early on if anything unforeseen arises that is going to cause slight delays.
