Office Lighting tips
Position the desk lamp opposite to your natural hand, so if you’re right handed have your lamp placed on the left. This will reduce shadows when reading and writing.
Make sure the computer screen or monitor you are working on is angled away from any natural or electric light. This will avoid any light reflecting into the eyes.
Make sure your chosen desk lamp gives your work surface a full cover of light. If unsure, add a separate task light such as a clip on or wall light for extra illumination.
For study corners or reading nooks use general lighting such as ceiling spotlights as well as task office lighting to avoid the risk of eye strain.
Promoting a healthy and safe work environment is important and this doesn’t need to stop in the workplace. Introduce healthy office lighting at home with our range of special Eye-Care Desk Lamps from Philips. All our eye-care lamps offer a diffused and evenly distributed illumination that prevents eye-strain and fatigue allowing for a more focused and comfortable study time. By evenly distributing the light across a specific surface you prevent the risk of glare which can be a dangerous distraction when concentrating. Brighter lights will help keep your dad focused when he’s working hard in the home study. Keeping alert also helps with performance.
If your ol’ man is still a big kid at heart then we offer colourful desk office lighting to reflect your dads personality. The Piculet range adds a fun edge. Inspired by the exotic South-American tropical bird, this office lamp collection boasts a large head, a wide base and comes in a range of bold finishes including pale blue and red. The large headed shade offers a focused scope of warm white LED powered light. Alternatively our Globe Touch Sensitive Table Lamp in Chrome adds an eye-catching statement, combining education with illumination, this is a fun and informative addition. A 4-way touch control allows you to dim and brighten the light to suit your study needs.
