As much as ceiling lights brightens a room, it may not be sufficient when you are doing homework. Given space limitation, bedrooms double up as study rooms. Most bedroom lights are dim to create a relaxing atmosphere for bedtime. In addition, ceiling lights create shadows on the reading / writing materials, making the task of doing homework challenging. This would not be conducive for studies. A well lit study area would be necessary to brighten up the study area as well as eliminate the urge to drift to la la land.

Getting the right lamp is important  . Factors such as brightness , energy consumption , coverage are essential factors to consider when it comes to choosing the right desk lamp. The new 3M P1610 fits the bill and then some.

Design
3M LED P1610
Our previous 3M lights are rectangular in design . They look sleek but pales with the new curvy features of 3M P1610 . Breaking from its usual mould , the P1610 will suit well in the modern Art Deco home . Actually , it will fit in most rooms given its versatile look. Unlike its predecessors , the roundish feature will eliminate the risk of accidentally knocking into the longish led tubes of old. 

Circle is the new rectangle.

On a totally unrelated but important note, the first 3m Light we had since 2013 still shines as bright till today. It proves how well build 3M lamps are regardless of design.

Cool White

Warm White
There will be a light selection to suit your needs . As our house is fitted with warm white , having the  choice of a warm light desk lamp will be less harsh on the eyes . The contrast between the lights from the desk lamp and the main lights is minimize. 

By now it would be apparent that  a desk lamp is essential to protect little one eyes . In addition , it is also great for old folks like Daddy since he usually spends the twilight hours updating a blog . Instead of turning on the main lights and waiting everyone up , he could simple switch on the desk light, turn on some soft music and be entirely in his zone to pen his thoughts. In comparison to relying on the light source solely from the computer screen, his eyes will be better protected from the harsh glare.
