Supercharge your creative powers with a daylight lamp

Daylight lamps are an essential tool for artists. When you're creating in the real world rather than on-screen, having the right light to work by is essential. Poor lighting can make the creative process much harder; whether you're a designer, illustrator, crafter or artist, you require better light than a standard overhead bulb can provide, and that means something as close as possible to natural daylight as possible.

But there's more. Not only do you need ample illumination to see fine details and ensure that the colours you're working with are just right, you also need just the right spread of light for the area you're working on, and the ability to position your lighting exactly where it's needed. And of course, you'll almost certainly want all this from a lamp that'll look good in your home and studio.
