Ideally timed during the middle of winter, Dyson has recently unveiled the Dyson Lightcycle Morph, a light that employs local daylight tracking to offer customized solutions that mimic natural light. The Lightcycle Morph is connected to the Dyson Link App, allowing for full adjustability depending on the user’s task, age, mood and local daylight.

“Task” for focused light, “Indirect” for less intense situations, “Feature” for dramatic lighting and “Ambient” for a warm glow are the four general light settings the lamp offers. It also offers pre-set modes called “Study,” “Relax,” “Precision,” “Boost,” “Wake-Up,” “Sleep,” and “Away.” Users are able to save up to 20 custom light settings that can be controlled by a dimmer and
color temperature selection feature.

Artificial light is still a relatively new concept for humans. Dyson notes that, “if you were to shrink evolution into 24 hours, artificial light would only have existed for around seven seconds.” Because of this, human circadian rhythms are still mostly in sync with the natural rising and setting of the sun. Lightcycle Morph’s adaptability moves beyond artificial light’s typical limitations to create a more realistic and personalized lighting environment for users.

“With the Dyson Lightcycle Morph, our aim was to challenge the fundamental conventions of contemporary artificial lighting and find a soulution,” says Dyson Chief Engineer Jake Dyson. “So we developed a light that tracks natural daylight and intelligently transforms for different uses — providing the right light, at the right time, precisely where it’s needed.”

The Dyson Lightcycle morph is currently available as a desk light for $649.99 USD or a floor light for $849.99 USD over on Dyson’s website.

Elsewhere in design, Ghostly International and Floyd have teamed up on blacked-out modular shelving system.
