Office lamp available in two versions: with a halogen or a fluorescent bulb.  Both versions produce an asymmetric light distribution that responds to the dictates of modern ergonomy, thus ensuring at the same time the maximum visual performance and comfort, without tiring the eyes.

Heron is equipped with a pantograph mechanism which consents the reflector to maintain its inclination always parallel to the desktop, independently from its arm. On the bottom of the base, there are a series of small wheels which permit the lamp to turn freely on the work top.
