Desk lamps are also a great gift this Mother’s Day, to help your mum with her reading, crafts and activities. The right desk lamp could create the dream office space for your loved one, helping create an innovative, artistic space within the home. Task lighting is great for increasing illumination within an area of the home or working environment. The light takes into account levels of illumination, as well as contrast since a poorly positioned light can reduce contrast, resulting in a poor level of visibility. A freely adjustable task light is one of the most effective ways of ensuring everyday tasks are enhanced and easily adjusted to suit different situations. A good task light can ease eye strain, ultimately making a working environment more enjoyable. Here at Iconic Lights our range of office desk lamps and task lights offer small pools of high quality focused light, ideal for writing, drawing and laptop use. A great additional light source perfect for a range of tasks including reading, craft work and design.
