Embrace the Asymmetry with BenQ Smart Lighting


world photo

In a world obsessed with symmetry, it's the asymmetry that truly sets us apart, making each of us unique and irreplaceable.
We recognized the strong appeal of asymmetry, and thus in 2017, we introduced ScreenBar, the world's first monitor lighting solution. By adopting asymmetrical optics, ScreenBar eliminates direct light on your screen, reducing eye strain while illuminating your surroundings.
Now, we're celebrating asymmetry with a one-month campaign, partnering with 9 talented photographers to showcase the beauty of asymmetries in daily life.
