Table lamps are a basic element in any desk, because with only the general light it is not possible to get the right intensity for reading or writing, with visual comfort. On the contrary, the table lamp lets the light focus on the objects we work with, study or simply read.
There is a large selection of adjustable table lamp. They are usually made of metal (aluminum) or plastic, materials that have greater versatility to be able to work it out. As for the colors, they are predominantly white, black silver or chrome, although they are also available in bright colors such as red, yellow, orange, etc.
What is an adjustable table lamp used for?
This group includes all lamps that make it possible to adjust in height, angles and light intensity.
They are designed in two ways, one with a set of hinges that give them their functionality, the other are the so-called “flexible gooseneck”, made with a material that allows adjustment of height and rotation.
The weight of these lamps is, as the name suggests, which makes it possible to adjust the height and angle required for the light source, which avoids unwanted reflections in the eyes, besides we can change position and alone a small adjustment we can focus the light on the target again.
Adjust the light.
The other adjustable aspect of these table lamps is the light intensity. For several years, when there were only light bulbs, these types of lamps allowed adjustment in two degree intensity, high or low. High intensity was used for reading and low as ambient light. Then the dimers were placed, which allowed adjustment in a larger number of intensities.
However, with the appearance of the LED lamps, the quality of the lighting and the degree of adjustment for the intensity are infinitely superior, which increases the multifunctionality achieved by the introduction of the electronic elements.
Two major advantages of LED lamps are the quality of the lighting, as the luminaire’s annoying flicker and efficiency virtually disappeared, which reduced the energy cost and thus the electricity bill.
