Dazor

The Dazor company was founded in 1938 by Harry Dazey and Washington University professor Albert Perbal. The precision-balanced “Floating-Arm” revolutionized the task lighting industry in the 1940’s. Dazor was also the first fluorescent lamp manufacturer to combine the technology of the portable task light with fluorescent light bulbs. They still produce similar lighting.
