The science behind Dyson’s engineering with any product for that matter is quite the head turner, and it has always been the same way ever since. That applies to their air purifier with the POLAR Testing, the heating elements in their hair dryers or curler and the list goes on. One product they make is the Lightcycle, which is their table and floor light. This time, they have unveiled a new one which “morphs” from its predecessor. Meet the Dyson Lightcycle Morph.
Dyson Lightcycle Morph
The Dyson Lightcycle Morph – takes a page from the original Lightcycle which made its debut in 2019 and brings it further by incorporating features that you don’t see in any kind of lights in such form factor. It has a unique design with an aluminum-polycarbonate composite stem which has been rotationally perforated with 16,740 apertures and an arm of sorts that goes 360 degrees and has the capability to twist the light module around. That said, the Lightcycle Morph comes with the ability to emulate some of the properties of natural light in multiple formats – achieved with the help of their Daylight Tracking Algorithm and 3 warm and 3 cool LEDs which helps the Lightcycle to adjust the color temperature and brightness according to the user’s location.
Unlike other light that functions the same way through and through, the Lightcycle Morph has the ability to be used in 4 different ways. Indirect light is where the intelligent optical head smoothly rotates in 360-degrees to bounce lights off walls, floors, and ceilings. Task Light is meant to be used in focused situation with powerful light for work, hobbies, and other intricate tasks. Feature light allows you to create that dramatic effect, highlighting a piece of art at your home and finally we have ambient light where the stem lights up to create a nice orange glow with reduced blue light. Essentially, its multiple light in a form of one.
Their key idea has not changed entirely – it still brings the same principle of how the light works from its Lightcycle Task over to the Morph, where their heat pipe technology draws the heat away from the LEDs to give a non-stop energy-free cooling cycle, which allows the light quality to last for 60 years. The lights are said to reduce eye strain and improves visual performance with the help of the intelligent Optical Head it uses – by producing uniform distribution of high quality, powerful light and achieving low flicker score, all possible to the custom drivers and light engines.
Not just that, color accuracy is key to users and to the eye and this is where the Precision Mode achieves a color rendering index of 90 out of 100 – that means it shows colors remarkably close to what you’d experience in a proper daylight situation. It also helps older age groups to see better with its Age Adjust feature because a 65-year-old need about 4 times more light than 20 years old – now this feature can be accessed via the Dyson Link application and it comes with other presets such as Study, Relax, Precision, Boost, Wake-up, Sleep and Away. If you do want to control it manually, you can do so with the built-in touch controls.
Pricing and Availability
Just like the Dyson Lightcycle Task, the Dyson Lightcycle Morph comes in two different variants: Desk and Floor – essentially, features the same technology but covering different areas of sorts. That said, the Desk variant will be priced at RM 2,499 whereas the Floor Variant will go for RM 3,799, respectively. You can head over to Dyson Malaysia to purchase it or even experience it through their Demo Store at Gardens Mall and Mid Valley Southkey.
