This lamp is a type of gooseneck floor lamp that is designed with a weighted base under a sturdy frame topped by the gooseneck to give you directed light in whatever position it is required. For those who are working at a table and require every square inch for their work, this type of floor lamp is ideal because it can be placed next to the table leaving the tabletop clear. With the light directed from either over the shoulder or from the front as required you can be sure of getting strong light at any angle.

An important aspect to using this type of floor lamp is that it won’t strain the eyes through being overly bright. You should be able to use the light for extended periods at a time without coming away with a headache from the glare.

The light produced from the Ott-Lite floor lamp comes from an 18-watt fluorescent tube that is energy efficient. A model available is the Ott-Lite True Color floor lamp that is fitted with an Ott-Lite True Color fluorescent tube. This tube produces a clear white light that is almost as even as natural light. For performing close task work this light is ideal ensuring you can see exactly what you are doing without any distracting shadows.

The Ott-Lite floor lamp is definitely the kind of lamp you should be buying if you are serious about getting quality lighting for close work. The look is clean and modern with a vaguely retro feel about the gooseneck style.
