Gone are those times in which the role of lamps was based on the simple fact of lighting when sunset began to give way to dark nights. From the discovery of fire to the invention of led lights, humanity has been reinventing the use of lamps and the different types of lights.

Today, light creates atmospheres, decorates and even accompanies the multiple activities of a person in their day-to-day life. About this last point is our today article, focusing on sustainable table lamps ideal for reading moments.

But first, it’s interesting to note how the evolution of the most recent lighting has been responding to environmental concerns, where white LED light has come to replace incandescent lamps, which 100% of the electricity they consume, 95% transform into heat and only the remaining 5% into light. This same trend is happening with eco-friendly design, slow fashion and green architecture. The routes may be various, but the destination is the same: a more sustainable future.
