"Light matters to our wellbeing and task performance. So we developed a way to protect light quality for the long term."
Jake Dyson, Chief Lighting Engineer
Light quality that lasts decades.¹ Heat Pipe technology.
Without proper cooling, LEDs can quickly overheat, causing fading and discolouring. Dyson CSYSᵀᴹ task lights have Heat Pipe cooling technology, found in satellites. A vacuum-sealed copper tube draws heat away from the LEDs, protecting light quality for 60 years.¹
We spend up to 90% of our time indoors. Yet poor lighting can affect our eyes and our task performance.²
The new Dyson CSYSᵀᴹ task light is engineered to help reduce eye strain.³
Even if you don't notice it, low light, glare or flicker can cause eye strain.⁴ The Dyson CSYS™ task light provides more than 1000 lux brightness, combined with glare protection and low optical flicker,⁵ surpassing recommended levels for work and studying.³
Bubble Optic lens. Designed for the human eye.
Because of Heat Pipe technology, Dyson CSYS™ task lights are able to use a single, high-power LED chip-on-board light source. With precisely calculated optical geometry, the Bubble Optic lens enables excellent uniformity (0.8) and shadow quality, while displaying colours very close to daylight with a CRI over 90Ra.
3 Axis Glide™ motion. Light exactly where you need it.
A gentle touch of the arm precisely positions your light – vertically, horizontally, and through 360°. And with no springs or pivots to wear out, there's no drooping.
Precise fingertip controls. To suit your task or mood.
Slide-touch dimming lets you define your personal light level, with brightness ranging from a relaxing 100 lux to over 1000 lux for tasks that require high visual acuity.
Helps protect eyes from glare.
A polycarbonate glare baffle around the Bubble Optic lens uses a finely textured, matt finish to reduce glare and shield eyes from the light source.
