Best table and desk lamps in Singapore
Carving out a dedicated workspace in your home is a good way of separating work and play. One of the must-haves in every workspace is a solid desk lamp that brightens the area, reducing eye strain and allowing you to focus.
Plus, having a desk lamp gives you a constant directed light source, so you don’t need to depend on natural sunlight when it’s overcast or disturb your roommates’ sleep when you’re staying up. Whether you’re rushing for deadlines or getting a cram sesh in before a big exam, here are 7 best table lamps that can accompany you through the wee hours.

If you’ve ever had poorly fitted LED table lamps that flicker, you would know how straining it is for your eyes to concentrate on whatever is in front of you. The Mi LED Desk Lamp is designed to be a stable light source, reducing eye fatigue and strain.
You can either adjust the brightness and colour temperature directly via the knob at the base of the lamp, or switch between 4 preset lighting modes using the Mi Home app.
Focus mode: Allows you to customise different lighting periods for focus or rest, so that you can be more productive in bursts without neglecting rest time for your eyes.
Read mode: Colour temperature is adjusted to a neutral white hue (4000K) and 100% luminance so that your eyes don’t get tired even after reading for long periods of time.
Computer mode: To reduce the amount of harmful blue light exposure to your eyes, this mode keeps the colour temperature at a warm white hue (2700K) so that the light emitting from the screen isn’t too jarring.
Child mode: To protect childrens’ eyes and prevent myopia or other vision damage, colour temperature is kept under 4000K.
