Discover ultimate convenience and versatility with the Diffrient Technology Work Light. An ideal lighting and power solution for hospitality guestrooms or "hot-desking" environments - shared work spaces utilized by mobile workers - the base of the Diffrient Technology Light features two convenient built-in power outlets for laptop computers, mobile devices, and other electronic devices. An optional data port for easy internet or LAN access provides another dimension of convenience.


  • Two easily accessible grounded outlets in the base.
  • Optional CAT5 data port for internet or LAN connectivity.
  • Clean, modern aesthetic.
  • Feather-light, knob-free positioning.
  • Reinforced plastic reflector shade cuts glare and stays cool.
  • Lower rear lip on shade to further reduce direct glare.
  • Supports the latest ballast-in-bulb technology.
  • 180° horizontal and 220° vertical shade adjustability and 360° base rotation allow for infinite adjustability.
  • Choose from single or double arm.
