Bright Light, Big Value

With its up-to-date LED technology, Flute provides high-quality light output at an amazingly low cost—about $1.13 a year.

The Flute Personal Light has a life span of 24 years, during which you won't ever have to change a bulb. It provides 200 lumens of medium-warm light, which is kind to your eyes. And it's 85 percent recyclable and made in the USA.

  • Easy on the Eyes; and Your Wallet

    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.

  • Touch Control

    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.

  • Cool Colors

    Cool

    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.

  • Earth Friendly Product

    Earth-friendly

    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.

Answer: 
To turn the Flute Light on and off, you simply have to touch it. The light was designed to respond to your touch to turn the light on and off rather than needing to have a switch on the lamp or the cord. It has an integrated heat sink, which keeps Flute cool to the touch so you can pick it up and move it anytime without getting burned.

The Flute Light is a task light designed to sit on your table or work surface, and is not designed to be wall mounted. We appreciate your suggestion though and will be sure to keep it in mind for future product development opportunities.

Do Flute Personal lights ship with both a clamp and a freestanding base? Is the customer supposed to choose between a clamp and a freestanding base? Where on the website is a customer supposed to find out this information?

Answers

Answer: 
Our Flute Personal Light is "Plug and Play". It has a driver that is universal which allows it to work with 100vac to 250vac, 50/60Hz. The plug blades in Japan are the same as in the US as well.

Please note - Japan may have specific electrical safety approvals besides UL.

Answers

Answer: 
The Flute Personal Light is designed for accent light use, such as a desk lamp, and does not provide as much light as a primary light would. 200 lumens of light is equivalent to a 10 watt bulb, but the lamp uses LED chips that last for 24 years, consuming 30-50% less energy than traditional light bulbs.

If you have any further questions, please contact Herman Miller Customer Care at 888.798.0202.

The design thinking in this product is stellar. The LED functionality is great, and it makes a great design element on my desk. The Flute task light embodies the design elegance that I have come to expect from Herman Miller. April 13, 2012
