3 - 4 days per week, I work in the “cheap seats” (i.e. hot-desking area) of a co-working office in Camden in London.
I love it here, and much prefer it to WFH. However, the hot-desking area is abysmally illuminated. Using a popular light meter app, I measured the desk at 80 lux. The recommended minimum for offices is 240 lux.
I’ve bought a monitor lamp, but:
- It’s very directional
- It doesn’t provide enough light
Does anyone have any recommendations?
I need a desk lamp which provides a lot of diffused light. I.e. so that it won’t dazzle/annoy people who’re sitting nearby, but still make a material difference to the amount of light on my desk.
It must be easily portable so that I can put it away in my locker at the end of each day.
Sidenote: Yes - I have asked the management for more lights to be installed, and others have complained too. There is no sign of any improvement. The co-working space is so great in every other respect (especially the people!) that I’m not willing to move to a competitor just to get more light!
