Design by Yves Behar.
By Herman Miller.
"Leaf is designed to give the user a full spectrum of choices to express light's magical and sensory variations. It allows the human senses to become engaged by allowing the user to choose the intensity and color of light which best suits a functional need, mood or location." - Yves Behar.
Simple and intuitive touch sensitive controls let you choose warm mood light or cool work light, or something in between, along with the level of illumination you want. To adjust, slide your finger. To turn the light on or off, just touch it. An integrated microprocessor even remembers the intensity and color variation setting that was selected the last time and returns to that setting when turned on. Leaf stays cool to the touch with the use of its proprietary, continuous heat-dissipation system.
Leaf's thin aluminum blades produce the elegant profile, which give the light a sculptural, organic form. The lower blade rotates 180° and pivots 27.5° forward and 23° backward. The upper blade pivots 210° - extend for direct lighting or fold for subtle, ambient illumination.
Developed using Herman Miller's Design for the Environment Protocol, Leaf uses less of the world's resources to give better light. Its LED light source consumes only 8-9 watts of power, about 40% less than compact fluorescent lights. Leaf is made of 37% recycled materials and is up to 95% recyclable at the end of its useful life.
Chosen by Time Magazine as one of the Best Inventions of 2007 for its energy efficiency and sleek design. Leaf also resides in the permanent collections of The Art Institute of Chicago, MoMA- New York and the Musee National D'Art Moderne/Centre Pompidou.

Yves B?har is a thinker. And one thing he thinks about a lot is the future. You can see it in his designs ? from his reflective red-lacquered laptop for Toshiba to his elegant closed-toe Footprints for Birkenstock to his refined Aliph Jawbone Headset for cell phones. "I believe design's purpose is not only to show us the future, but to bring us the future," he states.
Yves Behar is the founder of the San Francisco design studio, fuseproject. Yves is focused on humanistic design and the "giving" element of his profession.
