Leaf Light by Herman Miller is the result of more than three years of collaborative engineering and design development between Herman Miller and Yves Behar’s San Francisco based studio, fuseproject.

 Leaf is a combination of LED (light emitting diode) technology, engineering and sculptural beauty.  Its thin profile and range of motion allows the user to position the blades for direct lighting or fold the blades for subtle, ambient light.

Leaf’s sculptural form was created to minimize material use while maximising light options. Overall Leaf’s LEDs consume less than 12 watts of power, carry a lifespan of over 60,000 hours at full power and cut energy use by 40 percent compared to compact fluorescent lights.  The light has been developed according to Herman Miller’s demanding Design for the Environment protocol, emphasizing sustainable processes, materials and recyclability.

Leaf is available exclusively nationwide through Living Edge.
