Unlocks technology potential.
Jake Dyson, son of James Dyson, has found the solution to increasing the life span of LED task lights by protecting them from the damaging effects of heat, which degrade brightness and colour over time.
“Other designers have made attempts to cool LEDs. But it’s not enough. The vast potential of this technology remained unrealised. We knew there had to be a better way,” Dyson told select media at an exclusive launch on Wednesday.
Jake Dyson Light’s CSYS™ task lights use heat pipe technology to direct heat away from their LEDs, sustaining brightness for up to 144,000 hours. This allows for eight high-power LEDs to be positioned just 8mm apart, providing a powerful light output.
Many conventional lights rely on springs and pivots to stay in position, but these often weaken over time and cause the light to droop. CSYS™ task lights use a counterweight pulley system inspired by the construction crane, using gravity, rather than tension, to remain in position.
The light moves vertically and horizontally along anti-friction bearings, and the weighted zinc alloy base rotates smoothly through 360 degrees. Touch-sensitive, continuous dimming makes the light suitable for many tasks, and built-in memory recalls the user’s most recent light level setting.
In the collection there are two freestanding models, the CSYS™ desk light (AU$850) and the CSYS™ floor light (AU$1,200), as well as the CSYS™ clamp light (AU$850) which attaches directly to a desk or table.
The lights will be available at www.dyson.com.au and in department stores. Selected electrical retailers are being considered by the company.
