    Designed by Tom Newhouse for Herman Miller®
    A flexible, economical, and lightweight task light for your home that leaves a very small carbon footprint on the earth. Flute was designed by Tom Newhouse to be flexible, versatile, compatible, economical. And with its LED technology, 85% recyclability, 24-year life span, and cost of about $1.13 to use it for a whole year, Flute leaves a minuscule carbon footprint on the earth. Weighing in at just two pounds, this task light also leaves a small footprint on your desk. And it's home-grown: made in the USA.

    Easy on the Eyes—and your Wallet
    While producing 200 lumens of medium-warm light consumes up to 50 percent less energy than traditional task lights. The cost of using it for a year—about $1.13—is 15 times less than the cost associated with traditional lamps. Flute's LED chips require no replacement or service over its estimated 24-year life span with average use.

    Here's Where it Really Shines
    To turn Flute on or off, just touch it. The freestanding model has a head that swivels 230 degrees from left to right to focus light where you need it. The clamp-on model rotates 360 degrees to provide the most flexibility in directing your light.

    Available in three cool colors—metallic silver, graphite, and white. Flute is cool in another way: It stays cool to the touch, so if you want to pick it up and move it while it's on, you won't burn your fingers.

    Flute is made of 36 percent recycled material. Its light weight reduces the costs of packaging, shipping, and warehousing. It reduces energy consumption by 40 to 50 percent compared to traditional bulbs and emits no carbon dioxide, mercury, or sulfur, as traditional light bulbs do. And it's 85 percent recyclable.

    Design Story

    Flute embodies two of Newhouse's passions—the study of emerging office issues and the implementation of green design concepts. Flute can be used in any work environment as a freestanding lamp or with a surface mount. It uses the latest in LED technology to provide high-quality light output.

    Manufactured from 36% recycled material, Flute consumes 30 to 50+% less energy than traditional task lights. It uses only a total of 5.2 watts of energy to provide 31 lumens per watt and has a life span of more than 60,000 hours (24 years with average use). At the end of its useful life, it is 85% recyclable.
