Adjustable bicolor LED light

Designed by Yves Béhar for Herman Miller, Leaf is the first light-emitting diode (LED) tabletop light that provides both warm and cool light sources. Leaf’s thin profile is derived from a lower blade that can be folded close for subtle, ambient light or raised vertically for wall illumination.

High-intensity LEDs generate significant heat, complicating design and typically requiring a motorized fan for heat dissipation. Leaf’s LEDs are cool to the touch due to the use of a patent-pending heat-distribution system, achieved through an engineered heat sink and a stamp-formed, sculptural aluminum blade that allows heat to be released and dispersed.
