San Francisco-based designer Peter Stathis was all over the convention center, with some fantastic new lighting with Humanscale and, pictured here, Joby. Obus is an incredibly clever indoor/outdoor light. It charges when its placed on its (presumably indoor) base, but then, say, it's nighttime and you're walking out to have a beer in the backyard. When you pick Obus up, it turns into a flashlight (!). Setting it down on any flat surface will transform it back to its (dimmable) ambient glow.
