Flute Personal Light
The elegant Herman Miller Flute Personal Light represents the very latest in LED technology. Flute was designed to leave a minuscule carbon footprint on the earth and an even smaller footprint on your desk. This clever light is so versatile, it functions beautifully when surface mounted or free standing, weighs only two pounds and is cool to the touch.
Designed by Tom Newhouse, Flute embodies two of Tom'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.
Herman Miller® History
Founded in 1923 and recognized today throughout the world as an innovator in office and residential furniture design, Herman Miller has been ranked since 1986 among the top ten in Fortune Magazine's annual list of the 500 most admired companies. Their pioneering research into producing environmentally responsible furniture has earned them GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality certification for most of their products. Aesthetically, many of Herman Miller's iconic designs, particularly from the 1940s and 1950s, are valuable collector's items and on permanent display in museums such as the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Smithsonian Institution.
In 1933, new furniture designs created by Herman Miller designer Gilbert Rohde exhibiting the smooth lines and unembellished shapes of the emerging mid-century modern furniture style were exhibited at the Chicago World's Fair. In 1944, Rohde's successor George Nelson designed such enduring icons as the Platform bench, and was famously responsible for teaming the company with such influential design artists as Alexander Girard, Isamu Noguchi and Charles and Ray Eames. Charles Eames, widely regarded as a genius in contemporary furniture design, produced one of Herman Miller's most successful products in 1956, the elegant Eames Lounge chair. In 1994, Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf introduced a new office chair called Aeron (derived from the word aeration, which describes how the mesh suspension promotes comfort), which became an immediate worldwide success and earned a spot in the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as well. Today, Herman Miller continues to attract world-famous designers like Jeff Weber, Jerome Caruso, the Studio 7.5 Design Team in Berlin, Yves Behar, Mark Goetz and many more.
If the purpose of design is to solve problems, and the relationship between design and business is synergistic, then Herman Miller today continues to be in the vanguard of design as a fundamental part of strategic planning.
