First, it became clear that the “quality” of light went beyond providing the right colour temperature for colour matching and good contrast qualities. Optimum brightness and the right spread of light were of equal importance.
Secondly the light needed to be able to be positioned with ease, exactly where it was needed. This was a very different proposition if you were an artist using an easel, compared to a manicurist working on a client’s nails, or an engineer inspecting a circuit board.
Thirdly, it was obvious that the more the lamp’s aesthetic design appealed to the user, the greater the pleasure it would provide.
By 1995, Daylight had become a leading manufacturer of lamps for the arts and crafts market and began exporting to Europe. In the years that followed, the company developed lamps for people with sight loss, the health and beauty and industrial markets, and began selling in the United States and Australia.
