The best solution for achieving optimal workspace lighting is an asymmetric task light.
Ergonomically designed task lights distribute light evenly across the working area. Importantly they prevent reflection and will not cause any discomfort to colleagues. The even light distribution eases the transition between light and dark areas on the working surface and allows your eyes to work in a constant, comfortable light.
Statutory requirements fulfilled
Requirements for good workspace lighting are laid down in the international standard for indoor workplace lighting, EN 12464-1. Luxo task lights fulfill the illuminance requirements of a minimum average of 500 lux on the desk surface.
