About the Designer
Niels Diffrient  

Niels Diffrient's designs are grounded in philosophy of form flowing from function. His work has spanned generations, consistently looking past trends to reinvent tools we use for daily living. With an academic foundation in aeronautical engineering and degree from Cranbrook Academy, Diffrient channels his knowledge of fine arts, engineering and architecture into design practice of passion and integrity. His highly functional designs are aesthetically timeless. In his early work with studios of Eero Saarinen, Marco Zanuso, and Henry Dreyfus, to his current work with Humanscale, Diffrient's visionary talent has been widely recognized. Included in his many honors are 2003 National Design Award from Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and 1999 Chrysler Design Award. Most recently he has focused primarily on design for office environment, particularly seating, where he has won many industry awards.

Task lighting provides the correct amount of light for the task being performed. Viewing a computer monitor or walking down the aisle requires far less light than does reading a typewritten page, making it neither effective nor efficient to light the entire environment at the same level. When utilizing task lighting, the general lighting level in the facility can be lowered to a level appropriate for monitor viewing, thus creating a softer, more pleasant atmosphere and saving energy. Work surfaces are supplemented with task lighting to give workers total control over where and how much light they need for other tasks, such as reading a document. With asymmetric reflector shades, featherlight positioning and compact fluorescent technology, the Diffrient Light is a shining example of ergonomic design and superior engineering.

    Great light!

     from Beavercreek, OH

    I am serious about working at my desk. I need a light that puts out a good amount of light and is aesthetically pleasing. It is hard to find the former because companies are focusing on putting forth a beautiful lamp, but they make it with a wimpy light output and/or isn't very functional. Don't worry about this one! It's not the most beautiful lamp (it really is attractive, but there are definitely ones that are nicer looking), but it puts out a GREAT amount of light. You can rotate the shade and adjust the height to cover the proper amount of desk space you want. It really is nice and very functional. Also a nice feature is being able to use a simple compact flourescent bulb. So many of these new design have high-power LEDs. I am a little concerned about their power output...and you can't readily buy them when they need replacement. With this model you can go to a local store ([...]) and buy a bulb for a rather inexpensive price. I thought that I would need to get 2 lamps for my desk (4'-6' long), but 1 is doing the job I need it to do (provide a good amount of light to work at my desk).
