From a design point of view yes it is large but it does have a stylish design to it, the curved white design makes it look interesting and gives a designer feel to it. The curve though is there to help improve the light and the effect it has on you. To the front of the unit is a simple on/off button and that is all.

Couldn’t be easier! A simple on and off button to the front does exactly that, there is nothing to set up, just plug it in and switch it on.
You will see benefit from using this light from 15-45 minutes a day, ideal for when getting ready in the morning, making breakfast and lunch, and also having on when cooking the evening meal.

The Light from the Lumie Brazil has a brightness level of 10,000 lux when used at least 35cm away, to put this into context, some of the brightest offices you may work in may only be around 500 lux, so this lamp is very bright.

The light is pricey but is a great investment and worth the money, it will make a difference to you and how you feel even if you aren’t a SAD sufferer or have the winter blues.
