    The low-voltage high efficiency bespoke light engines shed a spectrum that comes much closer to daylight than normal lights making the High Definition the ideal choice for embroidery, crochet, sewing, knitting and much more.

    Enjoy working under the same light used to show off the artist's colour palette and brush strokes and trusted to bring out the fine detail in the Van Gogh Museum.

    It is no accident that Serious Lights are relied upon by surgeons, forensic scientists, artists and opticians, among over 500,000 serious individuals in over 60 countries.
