"Other designers have made attempts to cool LEDs. But it's not enough.

Their lights still fade. We've invented the first LED light with an effective cooling system. As a result, it lasts for 144,000 hours***."

A change in lighting

General lighting has been popular for a long time. It creates a high level of illumination over an entire floor area, meaning that you don't have to consider how furniture is arranged. However, this uniformity creates bland, uninteresting spaces. And it wastes light. For this reason, lighting codes and standards now recommend a different approach: task lighting.

Task lighting works differently. It only provides a high level of illumination over the areas where it's needed. Other areas, used for break-out and storage, require far less illumination. Light isn't wasted, so energy and costs are saved.

3 Axis Glide™ motion

You can position the light exactly where you need with just the touch of a fingertip. It moves vertically, horizontally and rotationally through 360°.

Heat pipe technology

Heat is drawn away from the LEDs using technology typically found in satellites. It's dissipated through an aluminium heat sink, which forms the light's horizontal arm.

Precision dimming

CSYS™ task lights have touch-sensitive, continuous dimming. So you can adjust them to exactly the level of light you need. The dimmer has a memory, so when you switch the light back on it's exactly how you left it.

High power LEDs

Eight LEDs provide warm, white light for up to 144,000 hours***. Each one is housed in a conical reflector to eliminate glare.

Stays bright for up to
144,000 hours***

CSYS™ task lights use Heat pipe technology to direct heat away from their LEDs, sustaining brightness and color for up to 144,000 hours***.

Loses brightness

Neglecting to protect LEDs from heat can damage their phosphorous coating, degrading brightness and color.

Surpassing the Illuminating Engineering of North America Standard

And it's only made possible by Heat pipe technology. Eight high-power LEDs, spaced just 8mm apart, provide a light output of 54.5 fc of warm, white light.

3 Axis Glide™ motion

While conventional lights rely on tension to stay in position, CSYS™ task lights use gravity. The arm moves vertically using a counterweight pulley system inspired by the construction crane. It also extends 10.8 inches horizontally along anti-friction bearings. The zinc alloy base rotates smoothly through 360°, and is weighted to increase stability.

CSYS™ task lights stay put

CSYS™ task lights use gravity to remain in position – so light stays exactly where you need it.

Others droop

Some conventional lights rely on springs and pivots to stay in position. But these can weaken over time and cause the light to droop.

Reduce glare

They only illuminate the area that needs light, so there’s no need to angle them. Each LED is housed in a conical reflector to reduce glare and improve visibility.

Others glare

Conventional lights can create glare. If the light source is angled towards you, the misdirected light can reduce your visibility. If it’s angled away, it can affect others in the room.
