While lighting fixtures such as pendants are often used to provide task lighting, lamps can be a good option for dedicated task lighting. Using lamps for task lighting makes it possible to reduce the brightness of overhead lighting to save energy and create a more soothing environment. Among the range of lamp choices, LED lamps stand out as a worthwhile investment.
The benefits of LED technology particularly shine through the medium of a lamp. In contrast to halogen lamps, LED lamps run cool to the touch and are more energy efficient. These benefits can also be enjoyed for a longer period of time, as LED lamps can last up to 50,000 hours. Their use of diodes allows LED lamps to efficiently illuminate a broad span of space using a minimized fixture. Many designers take advantage of the compactness of LED technology to add intuitive features to LED lamps. The Lady7 LED Desk Lamp by Koncept showcases the inventive possibilities of LED technology. Complete with a USB charging port, dimming via touchstrip, and a 5-hour auto-shutoff timer, it is fully equipped to meet a variety of needs. With an array of LED lamps available, it is guaranteed that your unique lighting needs may be met through an exceptional LED lamp.
