Looking like a construction crane, the CSYS LED Task Light from designer Jake Dyson is an object of desire. At least as much as one can desire such an industrial looking object… which is a lot. Made from aluminum, copper and plastic…
[the] CSYS LED task light can be adjusted effortlessly in three axes to allow exact, stable positioning. Setting the LED head close to the working area allows focussed illumination, whilst raising it creates a wide, even pool of light. The mechanics are designed with precision to ensure a smooth accurate movement and positioning.
The heat pipe within the CSYS LED task light conducts heat away from the LEDs and distributes it evenly over the length of the heat sink. It uses no external pumps or extra energy to cool the LEDs and is instrumental in keeping the CSYS task light running brightly and efficiently for 37+ years.
As usual with objects that look decent, you can expect to pay a price premium. The CSYS Task Light is £550.00 (around $858 USD).
