Luxury Lighting PROFILE 07: The LEAF Lamp

Leaf Lamp Herman Miller

Leaf Lamp Herman Miller

The LEAF lamp is a gorgeous, one of a kind lamp. Sculpted out of aluminum it resembles, as the name suggests, a leaf. The aluminum blades form a very modern and adjustable desk lamp. It is said to be one of the first lamps that allows a person to choose between warm mood lighting and a more cool light to work under.

Yves Behar designed the LEAF lamp for Herman Miller. Yves said it took 4.5 years to design and create this uniquely crafted, luxury light fixture. He needed to design both the lamp structure as well as the light bulb to get the modern luxury lighting piece he desired. His design goal with the LEAF led lamp was to create a light piece with a humanistic side.

Touch Sensitive Controls

The base of the lamp is touch sensitive, and it is here where you can control the light’s settings. As well as being able to control the color of the light (warm/cool), the touch control base controls on/off, and the level of brightness.

The LEAF’s Ground Breaking ‘Bulb’

It is in the design of the bulb that allows for the control between the warm mood lighting and the cool work light. There are 20 LEDs in the lamp: 10 LEDs are blue to offer the cool white light, and 10 LEDs are yellow which produce the warmer color of light. Because of its unique shape, LEAF uses 40% less energy than a compact fluorescent light – which is the reason, as well as its elegant design, why TIME Magazine named the LEAF lamp as one of the Best Inventions of 2007.

“LEAF is designed to give the user a full spectrum of choices to express light’s magical and sensory variations,”

Yves Béhar

This organically shaped, luxury designer desk lamp comes in several colors to blend in with any décor. Choose between: white, black, Nickel (dark gray), polished aluminum (light gray) or red. Price: 429$. Herman Miller
