Zone lighting provides for the required level of brightness on the desk and creates a working area in which objects and details become more visible. This also prevents the eye from tiring too rapidly and improves the concentration and performance level while working. Moreover, it is decisive that the illumination in the office is intensive enough to be able to handle all required tasks that involve the eyes, however, glare has to be avoided – direct glare as well as glare created through reflections from the computer screen.
This means that before you can start doing your work at the desk you first need to carefully select an ambient lighting and zone lighting concept. For this purpose, this shop offers you a
large selection of luminaires that will upgrade your office or your study in terms of light technology as well as visual appearance.

As soon as the general illumination has been ensured, it is about time to provide for zone lighting at the desk. This task can be e.g. taken over by a pendant light. The Ipe H2 by Rotaliana, for instance, is an ideal choice in this regard. The surprisingly slim pendant light suffuses the table in the office with direct light emitted from above. The about 130 cm wide designer light made of lacquered aluminium also indulges larger desks with warm-white light that is supplied by energy-efficient LED lamps. The Belux UpDown, which is slightly larger with a width of 156 cm, also offers brightness from above. Its special feature: it emits its lights in both directions. Here, its "wings" can be brought into the desired position by means of an intelligent mechanism so that the light is always directed upwards and downwards at the required angle.
Those who would like to make office lighting more flexible and precise, make a good choice with a table lamp or a standard lamp.

Furthermore, right-handers should place the luminaire on the left side and left-handers on the right side so that the hands do not produce any disturbing
