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.
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.
