WiT - LED Lighting


The World's First Lamp

Designed for e-Reading

Time for e-Reading
with a Smile

Joy of Arc in e-Reading

We have been welcoming the second era of reading, where reading across various screens has become the dominant medium through which people read.

While reading on screens brings convenience and entertainment, the needs for the right lighting of screen reading have never really been met. Due to the reflection and contrast glare caused by unadjusted lighting causing discomfort for the reader's eyes, BenQ's lighting team decided to create an illumination solution that cares about every aspect of your e-Reading experience.

Inspired by more than 1,800 hours of iterative design process

Quick Prototyping

Finally, this diligence effort culminated into one single shape, an ARC which is destined to solve all lighting problems.
The smooth and inspiring shape resembles the smile which was one everyone's face at the wrap-up.

Here comes the WiT,

the lamp featuring Smile Curve Technology, that makes your e-Reading sessions more comfortable and pleasant.

Smile Curve Tech

WiT shapes the smile that you read with.

WiT's uniquely curved shape is the epitome of function merging with aesthetics. Compared with traditional lamps, WiT delivers light evenly across your entire e-Reading area, eliminating the contrast glare and enables the user to flexibly adjust the brightness and color temperature (2700K-5700K).


Wider 90cm lighting range, as you want.

The Smile Curve Technology lights up an expansive 90cm range, 150% wider than typical lamps on the market, as well as achieve the illuminance of 500 lux at the desk. WiT can illuminate your reading world more evenly and with a wider spectrum.


Smart e-Reading mode, as you need.

With just one touch on the ring to activate the e-Reading mode, the built-in ambient light sensor detects the light of the environment and WiT delivers the patented 'brighter at the sides, darker in the middle'illumination to reduce the contrast glare and the reflection on your screens.


Dimmable cool white and warm white, as you wish.

Simply turn the rotary knob, so you can easily fine tune the color temperatures and the brightness to suit your reading needs. Go with a cooler temperature for your problem-solving tasks; go with the warmer tones for relaxing.

Aesthetics Outside, Technology Inside

A. Flicker-free LED driver IC offers constant and even lighting

B. Ambient light sensor detects environment illumination

C. Curved light guide module widens the illumination area

D. The LED complied with the IEC/EN62471 photobiological safety regulation does not harm your eyes

Highly Flexible: Bring the Right Light to Where You Need It

Thanks to the bespoke ball-joint that optimizes the flexibility of the lamp cap, you can take the right light at any angle that you need. WiT is also equipped with extremely durable torque springs and precise friction control to counter-balance the weight.

Eco-Friendly Materials. Good for You and Good for the Earth.

The light cap utilizes the lightweight aluminum alloy to dissipate the heat generated by the LED, thereby extending the lifespan of the LED over typical plastic caps. For torque springs, zinc alloy is used to enhance the stability and durability. All WiT materials meet the restrictions in the EU Directive, RoHS (2002/95/EC). The WiT has passed international safety standards certification to ensure the protection of your safety.
