Task lighting provides the correct amount of light for the task being performed. Viewing a computer monitor or walking down the aisle requires far less light than does reading a typewritten page, making it neither effective nor efficient to light the entire environment at the same level. When utilizing task lighting, the general lighting level in the facility can be lowered to a level appropriate for monitor viewing, thus creating a softer, more pleasant atmosphere and saving energy. Work surfaces are supplemented with task lighting to give workers total control over where and how much light they need for other tasks, such as reading a document.
With asymmetric reflector shades, featherlight positioning and compact fluorescent technology, the Diffrient Light is a shining example of ergonomic design and superior engineering.
