Herman Miller’s Thrive Portfolio Adds 360—The Latest in LED Lighting from Luxo

March 7, 2012

Luxo, the Norwegian-based lighting manufacturer known for a wide range of classic and leading-edge luminaires, has introduced 360, a new LED (light emitting diode) task light featuring all the versatility of a standard articulating lamp in a subtle form. Designed by Stephan Copeland and boasting an unequaled combination of small footprint and long reach bettering any LED task light on the market, the 360 is the newest offering in Herman Miller’s Thrive Portfolio of health-positive, ergonomic solutions.

360 is purposefully designed for open office environments with lower panels. It features a height adjustable spring-balanced arm that keeps the lamp head parallel to the work surface for glare free illumination. The unique rotating base and head combination allow users to easily move the light a full 360 degrees, for outstanding flexibility and range in a minimal arm configuration.

There’s a very specific way to deliver light for healthy vision,” said Copeland. “360’s frame keeps a low profile on the desk and welcomes intuitive interaction, but it also gives you full ergonomic adjustability in a non-mechanical, smooth package.”

Herman Miller’s Thrive Portfolio offers 360 through a unique relationship with Luxo in North America, giving access to the world’s most extensive line of ergonomic and energy-efficient task lights, and the benefit of Luxo’s more than 75 years of globally recognized lighting design and manufacturing.

“360 is latest result of our exciting relationship with Luxo,” said Pat Sigler, Product Manager for the Thrive Portfolio. “This alliance gives us the ability to offer a variety of insightful lighting solutions at the most competitive prices.”

360 uses four dimmable LEDs totaling 6.5 watts to provide a light placement of 105 footcandles at 16 inches with a color temperature of 3250 Kelvin. It also incorporates an energy-saving automatic shut-off intelligence which turns the light off after nine hours of use. 360 is available in three color options including black, silver grey and white, and carries a five-year warranty.
