Creating comfort through light in an office environment is an important design aspect for lighting manufacturers. Designing anti-glare and flicker free lighting is an area all manufactures can agree on. Exterior appearance, however, is where it differs.
Different regions require different design aesthetics for office lighting fixtures. This is most evident when comparing European and Asian office lighting preferences. European lighting manufactures place importance on the exterior appearance of lighting fixture design while Asian manufacturers prioritize energy-saving benefits and improving work efficiency.
Floor lamps are commonplace in office lighting in Europe, due to their simple design and ability to project light downward.
