The importance of illuminating the office correctly
Houses are not the only places that need correct illumination. It is also important to carefully plan the lighting of workplaces and offices.
The whole workspace and especially the desks should be illuminated in an optimal way using office lamps with precise characteristics, in order to work several hours without the eyes getting tired.
If an office is illuminated by natural light, it must come laterally and can be complemented by the main light provided by a lamp placed in the middle of the room and by a secondary light source, given by desk lamps.
To ensure proper illumination of the worktop, it is advisable to place the table lamp on the opposite side of the hand you are writing with, so if you are right-handed the desk lamp will be placed on the left. This way you avoid shadows that could be annoying at the time of writing and reading.
In order to optimise the diffusion of the light, it is advisable to use adjustable lamps that allow you to rotate the lampshade and direct it to the affected surface. The light must be clear and must not dazzle, so LED lamps are the most suitable for reading.
What is the lighting for the ideal office?
A workstation must have a flow of 500 lumens, a recommended condition to allow the eyes to not get tired. In an office or a studio, the lamps must have a minimum colour rendering of 80, to make the colours as natural as possible. Moreover, according to the studies, the most suitable colour temperature is the cold one, which helps to have a greater contraction.
Among the many desk lamps that we recommend in our Light Shopping shop, we definitely find Tolomeo by Artemide the table lamp par excellence, equipped with a movable arm, adjustable lamp shade and LED technology. For general office lighting, you can use linear chandeliers with minimal style, or even Faro Barcelona LED ceiling lights.
In the choice of office lamps usually more sober lighting is preferred, made of lamps with simple shapes and neutral colors. What is given more value is certainly the type of light that is emitted and the distribution of the lamps inside the spaces.
