In 1990, Patrick Jacquelin discovered the daylight bulb on a trip abroad. Recognizing that natural daylight is the healthiest and more comfortable light for our eyes, he realised that this ‘daylight simulation effect’ could benefit thousands of individuals who need natural light for everyday tasks, or more specifically, for hobbies that involved intricate detail and colour matching. From this The Daylight Company was created. Since then, the company has steadily grown and today they are the market-leading brand of speciality lighting technology for the hobby industry across Europe and are well on the way to making Daylight the No.1 brand for Craft Lighting.

The wide range ensures that whatever hobby you prefer and wherever you do it, there is a daylight lamp to suit your needs and increase your productivity and enjoyment! There is an extensive line of magnifying lamps, i.e. a lamp that combines – the excellent ‘daylight’ light source – but also high quality magnification, as well as task lamps and separate magnifiers. The low heat/low energy bulbs are ideal for close-up work and perfect for use for long periods.
