design for a sustainable future
The cool LED light
Although incandescent light bulbs are being banned and on the way out in many parts of the world, the take up of innovative technologies in lighting design has been rather slow. In September this year Jake Dyson launched his CSYS LED task light at Design Junction in London. The light very cleverly combines LEDs with cooling technology to enhance the longevity of the product.
All light bulbs produce heat as well as light. This also true for LEDs, although they produce far less heat than an incandescent light bulb. Over time the heat destroys any light bulb or LED by burning it out. Jake Dyson implemented a cooling technology into his CSYS LED task light, which captures the heat at its source and deflects it away from the LEDs. This means the LEDs stay cool all the time and their lifecycle is enhanced. The assumption is that the light could be used for up to 160,000 hours continual use, which equates to up to 37 years, at 12 hours use a day.
Longevity is a key element of sustainable design. But the CSYS LED task light also convinces through its simple but strong design and engineering. The new light allows for flexible and precise light direction as it adjusts smoothly through three axes. The spread and intensity of the light can be controlled to the working area and it optical design minimises glare.
CSYS LED task light will be available at Jake Dyson Products from the 5th of December 2011.
