The history of our illuminated magnifiers
Our history of lighting for the individual began with the development of the Luxo L-1 task light in 1937. The freedom of movement and the ability to place the light exactly where it was needed forever changed the way task lights work.
L-1 was designed by Luxo’s founder, the industrialist Jac Jacobsen, and is still in production. The lamp arm is balanced by springs that work on the action and reaction principle of human arm muscles.
Jac Jacobsen soon realised that his spring-balanced arm would carry a variety of different luminaires for various purposes, including illuminated magnifiers. The decades following World War II saw the development of a range of illuminated magnifiers for industrial applications, therapy and cosmetology, low vision and the healthcare sector.
Modern range of arm-based magnifiers
Naturally, our range of products has been vastly expanded since the early days, when the first illuminated magnifier was manufactured in 1955. However, the philosophy and knowledge from the development of the L-1 are being preserved in our modern products. Today, our range of illuminated magnifiers features a wide variety of arm technology, with or without visible springs. They all have perfect balance and careful ergonomics built into them.
