Which Task Light?
When choosing your task light, your individual and personal requirements should be taken into account. So should your age. The need for light increases dramatically with age and should have an impact on your choice of task light.
Find the Luxo task light that’s right for you!
All our task lights fulfill the illuminance requirements of a minimum average of 500 lux on the desk surface. However, on the basis of size and functionality, some are best suited to smaller sized desks. For medium to large sized desks we offer task lights with a choice of asymmetric or symmetric light output.
Asymmetric light output
Symmetric light output
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.
Task lights with symmetric light output provide more light on the surface of a condensed area. They are particularly good for inspections and performance of visual tasks of low contrast and small size.
