Dyson and vacuum cleaners are as synonymous as Le Creuset and dutch ovens. While its vacuums made it famous, Dyson specializes in a range of household appliances such as air purifiers and hair dryers. And now the British technology company is expanding its lighting portfolio to include the Lightcycle Morph.
The Lightcycle Morph, which comes either as a desk lamp or floor lamp, is designed to emulate the properties of natural daylight to help regulate a person’s circadian rhythm. Historically, human sleep patterns were dictated by sunlight — morning and evening light are lower color temperatures than afternoon light, which triggered melatonin release to cause drowsiness. Because of smartphone screens and enormous light pollution, our bodies have a tougher time falling asleep naturally than they used to.
Dyson’s solution uses an algorithm to emit time-of-day-accurate light temperature in a room through six built-in LEDs. That means if you like to burn the midnight oil, or you like to wake up before the sun rises, the lamp allows you to do so without interfering with your sleep patterns (much).
The Lightcycle Morph can also be run in various custom or preset modes if you need clean, bright light to stay focused. All of its functions can be accessed through the Dyson Link app, but users can also use the lamp’s physical control panel.
The desk lamp and floor lamp are available now and retail for $650 and $850 respectively.
