Frequently Asked Questions about our lighting

Why Daylight?

Why Daylight?

All our lamps simulate natural daylight, which is the best for clarity and colour matching, and the most comfortable for the eyes when doing detailed task. They have been designed to be true to our three guiding principles: providing the best quality light in terms of colour temperature, spread and brightness; the right ergonomics, and attractive contemporary design.

Advantage of LED

LEDs are small and compact and have literally changed the way lamps are designed and manufactured.
LED lamps use on average 80% less energy than conventional incandescent bulbs. They are shock and impact resistant and have a very long life of up to 50,000 hours. They emit very low heat allowing people to work, read and play for many hours. It instantly switches on to its full power. The light can be dimmed and the colour temperature can be adjusted – for example: a lamp can have different settings whether the user wants a daylight light or a warmer light.

Dioptre vs Magnification?

Dioptre refers to the curvature of the lens. The more curvature, the thicker the lens and the more magnification.
Objects viewed under a 3 dioptres lens will appear 75% (or 1.75X) bigger than normal.
5 dioptres lens renders objects 125% (or 2.25X) bigger
8 dioptres lens renders objects 200% (or 3.0X) bigger
12 dioptres lens renders objects 300% (or 4.0X) bigger
