Natural Light - A Limited Resource
High-quality and consistent lighting conditions are essential for all visual arts. Natural daylight from north-facing windows is considered the ideal standard, but this can be limiting, especially in the winter months and evening hours.
Daylight Calibrated & Full Spectrum
NorthLux™ LED lamps and fixtures are daylight-calibrated to a 5000 K / 6500 K color temperature while boasting a 95 color rendering index (CRI) rating. This indicates that objects illuminated by our lamps appear the same as they would under natural daylight, allowing you to work at all hours with full confidence in your color assessments.

Very high quality and long lasting lights
Nice lights. Passed the test of an artist who works in colors. Using 6500K in a room with north facing windows. Matches very well. Keep in mind that the length listed is more of a trade size than actual size. (4' is 43.3" long per the datasheet)
I am a professional artist and I have worked in several studios over the years and never had lighting that was as close to daylight as these. My colors are true which makes my job so much easier on the eyes!
I bought this to brighten up my bearded dragon cage and to simulate natural light. It really did the job!!! I love it. This does not replace the necessary UVB.
Very happy with the even lighting these lights give out. My shop is well-lit for the first time ever!
The lighting quality is pleasant and even. I'm replacing all my fluorescents with waveform lighting. The service department was responsive in promptly replacing a defective item.
I am an artist (painter) and so very careful with the lights I use in my studio. Couldn't be happier to have purchased these. Great in every aspects Waveform Lighting promises. Thanks
We really like these lights. Very high CRI, excellent R9. We are planning to replace all of our old fluorescent tubes with Northlux tubes in our New York City photography gallery. Photographs and other artwork really require high CRI illumination for proper viewing – regular LEDs for general illumination won't do.
I ordered this to light my work bench for glass work. I needed good light with excellent color rendering. It fits the bill. Both product quality and customer service is excellent.
Upgrading from fluorescent lighting made such a difference. I ripped out the old failing fluorescent ballasts from the ceiling fixture and rewired for LED (not required, but made me feel better). Now, the light is brighter, the colors in my paintings read truer, and I'm much happier. I plan on buying a Northlux shop light to hang over my drawing desks.
LOVE my NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tubes for Art & Studio!
I bought 4 for my studio -- they use my old fixtures and grace my painting easel with very clean, perfect light!
Such a great technology! No buzz, no flicker, no hesitation! Best studio purchase I have made in a while!
I run a large community studio and I generally have great natural light during the day, so I was a bit lazy about looking for lights to replace the standard fluorescent tubes. Being in the NW, we do suffer early sunsets in the winter, and then just some generally low light days throughout the year. I think I found Waveform on Google and was intrigued by there line of tubes specifically for artists. I had several T8 fixtures and got a mix of the 6500K and 5000K. They make a HUGE difference!! They were easy to pop in, and give the room a beautiful amount of light, not too warm, not too cool. I wish I had put them in right away.
Waveform Lighting has been exceptional in my search for color corrected lighting for my daughter’s art studio. Initially, I wasn’t sure what type of lighting fixtures would be best to use. The support at Waveform Lighting promptly provided excellent information and answered all of my questions for me to make the right choice. I would not hesitate to use them again for any additional lighting I may need.
The color rendering of the Northlux 5,000 K tube lights in my painting studio is quite true and well balanced. That said, I am still curious about the 6,500 K Northlux tubes lights, and am thinking to order a set to try either alone or in combination with my 5,000K lights.
I ordered this light fixture to enhance the lighting in my studio space. It brought the lighting up to 1500 - 2000 Lux. Perfect for oil painting. It was shipped properly, arrived on time and undamaged. Easy to set up, hanging in studs from the ceiling and you plug it into a standard wall socket. I would definitely purchase this product again.
