    Hi everyone,

    since I saw the first time the pictures of Steve's home by Diana Walker I was impressed by his desk lamp.
    It has an unusual style that I like very much.

    Does anyone know where I can get it or know the producer's name?

    You can see it next to his Cinema Display and in his actual biography in the "pictures part" picture No. 9 (Where he is working on his Boston Macworld speech).

    I hope someone could help me.
    Thank you very much for your help.

    That's the rare (one-off) iLamp, made for Steve in China.

    As a token of their appreciation and adoration.

    Wait, what's that thing that looks like a mini Mac Pro on his desk? And is that actually a Cinema Display? I swear it looks bigger than 30"

    It's just a model. I don't think it serves any purpose at all.

    TBH I wouldn't be surprised if he had Ive whip something up for him (or have it custom made elsewhere).

    I'm quite surprised at how cluttered & trashy the room is.

    Perhaps he was a recovering hoarder, that didn't recover :)

    I believe so. A high-intensity lamp, with the usual parabolic reflector.

    Love this picture. It is the one on the inside cover of the biography I think. Not sure about the lamp though. I agree that his workplace was a mess. Especially for someone who was so into the uncluttered, streamlined look.

    Is that a 30 inch cinema display? I think this picture was taken in 2004. Was the 30 inch display available then?

    Ok, for the moment thanks everyone.
    @boss.king It's exactly the lamp i meant.

    Maybe it's custom made but i don't hope so.

    The little silver box next to the CD is a iomega external harddisk, called ultramax.

    He likely mainly used prototypes as his main equipment. Then he could get a feel for it in daily use and if they need to change something.

    That's the room of an artist. On the surface it appears a mess, but everything has it's place and that bookshelf actually looks used.

    I'm kind of disappointed that he didn't have one of these...

    It's good it wasn't an Apple lamp. There would be no power button.

    Can anyone make out that black computer box thing next to the little powermac/mac pro? At least it looks like a computer because of the white wires leading out and possibly connected to the giant monitor.

    I'd like to have a room like that. Wood floor, stone walls, wood shelves, thick wooden desk. :)

    It's a very similar style to the house I grew up in actually. Not too heat efficient in winter, but really nice and cool in summer.

    The first Pixar short I ever saw. Still smile when I think of it. :D

    Then it would know when you want it to come on. ;)

    @ComputersaysNo: Thanks for the better view.

    It's funny to see, that my thread creates the same reactions like all the other threads about this photo I have read in the last years (especially at macrumors), funny and a bit disappointing.

    So here are the answers.
    As already mentioned, the little Mac Pro Mini is an iOmega external harddisk and the black box is a Genelec speaker!!
