From 1 August 2013, the CSYS range from Jake Dyson Products will be available in lighting departments of The John Lewis Partnership across the UK and also online at www.johnlewis.com. In a year of unprecedented success for Jake Dyson Products, their retail distribution network has grown fivefold and their lights are now stocked in 61 retailers across the UK. Other big name stores include: Heale’s, The Conran Shop, Selfridges, twentytwentyone, Aram, and SCP. In other news, the CSYS LED light has just been presented the Homes & Gardens Award for Innovation. It has been chosen to feature in the renowned French architect, Jean Nouvel’s, ‘Office for Living’ project at the Salone International Furniture Fair and, design doyen, Rossana Orlandi’s 2013 showcase of influential designers.
The CSYS currently comes in two models, the CSYS LED Task light and the CSYS LED Tall (floor-standing version). Both feature a new application of heat pipe technology in its arm (developed for satellites and found in microprocessors for computers) that conducts heat away from the powerful LED chips, thereby prolonging their life and performance for over 37 years. This technology also maintains the brightness and colour rendition of the LED chips. Both lights are fully dimmable with a touch sensitive switch and light level memory. They can be smoothly maneuvered, both horizontally and vertically, as well as rotationally through 360˚, to allow precise positioning.
Phillip Anniss, Assistant Buyer for The John Lewis Partnership says:
“We have continued to focus on design collaborations for our Home ‘Design Collective’ and a partnership with the innovative Jake Dyson will be a fantastic addition to our designer lighting offer. Jake’s lights not only look great, but they offer unique functional features and, being LED, are environmentally efficient. We are supporters of British design and we know our customers will love his lights.”
Jake Dyson says:
“After extensive research and development, we launched the CSYS Task light at the London Design Festival in 2011 and were fortunate to receive strong praise from influential design figures, such as Sir John Sorrell, Sir Terence Conran, Jerryll Habegger, Fred Winkler and Murray Moss. Since then, we have been showing the CSYS to the trade and general public and it is tremendously rewarding to now have so many great retailers stocking our lights. It is still early days for us and we plan to continue our outreach across the world. We have more exciting new products in the pipeline that will help us to do this.”
Elsewhere in the world, a further 51 retailers are selling the product, including 18 in the US, such as Lumens Light and Living, Luminaire and Moss. The CSYS has been chosen to feature in the Permanent Collection of Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum (New York), a tremendous accolade for the studio. Jake Dyson Products is now focusing on the contract market and the CSYS will be seen in various exciting global projects for example, lighting up the headquarters of Rolls Royce.
