A desk lamp designed to last 24 years before a bulb needs changing must also have clean, timeless style—like Flute Personal Lights. Flute embodies designer Tom Newhouse's "Four Corners" philosophy, balancing aesthetics, ergonomics, sustainability, and economy.

Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.


Polished Aluminum

For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

Coated Metal

For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.


For normal cleaning, use products specifically designed for glass.

Love it for my desk!
Slim, minimalist, great lighting, beautiful. Elegant lamp for a desk that doesn't take up room. Provides light that is easy on the eyes.

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.

I cannot see anywhere on the Product specifications or the order form where a customer should choose between freestanding or clamp.

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?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2013
Best Answer: The Flute Personal Light offered on our online store is a freestanding light. The clamp mount version can be ordered through one of our Authorized Dealers or Retailers. Please use the following link to find an Authorized Dealer or Retailer in your area:

Replacement power supplies for the Flute Lamp

In moving our offices we lost (left behind in the cubicles) three of the power supplies for these lamps model Y6470 and power supply LD-P13503AF. Can we purchase replacement power supplies from you or do you have a supplier we can PO these from?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2015
Best Answer: The power supply/transformer for the Flute Lamp is available to purchase. An Authorized Herman Miller Dealer in your area will be happy to help you find the service part you're looking for. You can locate the nearest dealer by simply visiting http://www.hermanmiller.com/where-to-buy.html

Please contact the Herman Miller Online Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
what is the socket type for this lamp? and max wattage?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2014
Best Answer: The Flute Personal Lamp generates 4.64 watts of power. The Flute Personal Lamp also has a LED light which is a non-replacement bulb, so there is no socket information that we are able to provide.

If you have any other questions, please reach out to the Herman Miller Online Store at hmstore@hermanmiller.com or by calling 888.798.0202.
Wow, 200 lumens of light. Is that the best you can provide. What is that equivelent too, a 75w bulb?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2014
Best 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.

Can I use this light in USA & JAPAN?
Can I use this light in 100V 50hz?

Thank you.
A shopper on Apr 30, 2013
Best 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.

Can this light be wall-mounted?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2012
Best Answer: 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.

If there is anything else we can help with, please give us a call at 888.798.0202.

How do you turn the lamp on and off? Is a switch on the lamp/cord? Thanks.
A shopper on Mar 8, 2012
Best 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.
