Flute was designed by Tom Newhouse to be flexible, versatile, compatible, economical. And with its LED technology, 85% recyclability, 24-year life span, and cost of about $1.13 to use it for a whole year, Flute leaves a minuscule carbon footprint on the earth. Weighing in at just two pounds, this task light also leaves a small footprint on your desk. And it’s home-grown: made in the USA. Designed by Tom Newhouse, Flute embodies two of Tom’s passions—the study of emerging office issues and the implementation of green design concepts. Flute can be used in any work environment as a freestanding lamp or with a surface mount. It uses the latest in LED technology to provide high-quality light output.
