Stylish, sustainable, powerful, healthy, compact, adjustable; is there anything the Flute Light by Herman Miller doesn’t do? Before you go off and purchase a cut-rate lamp or task light, consider the real cost of maintenance and your carbon footprint on the environment, and consider the real value of the Flute Light.
A philosophy to live by.
Four Corners of Design
Designer Tom Newhouse lives by his "Four Corners" design philosophy: Every project takes aesthetics, ergonomics, sustainability, and economy into account. Flute embodies this approach.
Aesthetics and Ergonomics
This sleek, attractive office lamp has a lot of flair, and the way it's been designed to move contributes to its efficiency. The medium-warm light that Flute provides causes less eye strain than other types of light. Its swiveling head lets you shed light right where you need it most.
Sustainability and economy
The energy costs of packing, shipping, and warehousing are all reduced by the lamp's light weight. It's made of one-third recycled materials and is 85 percent recyclable. It uses so little electricity that you'll spend just a little over a buck on it every year.
A member of the West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum, Newhouse is devoted to environmental responsibility and green design. In the 1970s, long before it was popular, he designed and built an earth-bermed, passive solar house for his family. "I have been passionate on this issue for the past 25 years," Tom says, "and I will continue to be. That's one reason why I love to work with Herman Miller."
