The lamp has an adjustable metal neck for use at varying distances as well as a metal lampshade and metal covered base. A secondary decorative feature is a glass-enclosed cylinder with an inner gel substance that moves when light.

The applicable subheading for the Task Motion Lamp will be 9405.20.60, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Electric table, desk, bedside or floor-standing lamps: Of base metal: Other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem .
