    The dash LED Task light, designed by Steelcase in collaboration with Foster + Partner, uses an optical system to eliminate contrast and shadows, and has dimming control from 15–100%. Points of articulation provide maximum user control, and it’s the  first freestanding personal task light to meet BIFMA level 1 certification.
