"Our bodies can be influenced by daylight's changing spectrum of colour and brightness. So our new light adjusts with the daylight where you live."

Jake Dyson, Chief Lighting Engineer

Intelligently adjusts with your local daylight

Adjusts colour temperature and brightness with your natural light – providing the right light for the time of day.

Dyson daylight algorithm

Daylight constantly changes – and it varies in different locations. We developed a unique algorithm to calculate the colour temperature and brightness of daylight. Anywhere in the world, at any time of day.

Globe tracker

We can spend up to 90% of our time indoors.3 Yet poor lighting can affect our eyes and even our wellbeing.2

Light quality that lasts decades

The Lightcycle™ task light uses a cooling system often found in satellites to efficiently cool the LEDs. Protecting light quality for 60 years.1

    For work and study.

    More than 1000 lux brightness, combined with glare protection and low optical flicker 4 – surpasses recommended levels for desk work.2

    Regulates blue light, around the clock

    Unlike most lights that just stay the same, the Lightcycle™ task light adjusts colour temperature and brightness throughout the day. So it regulates blue light in relation to your local daylight.

  • Man working beside the Lightcycle™ task light

    Auto-corrects brightness for your age

    As we age, our eye muscles weaken and the lenses harden – so we need up to four times more light3. The Lightcycle™ task light automatically gives you the recommended brightness for your age.

Intelligently adjusts to your life

Personalised light is made possible by the Dyson Link app. It continually communicates with your Lightcycle™ task light to adjust for your daily routine and sleep times.

Pre-set task modes. Choose the right light for what you're doing.

  • Dyson task light on desk with bright light on book

    Boost mode

    For tasks that require extra focus, Boost provides bursts of brighter, cooler light.

  • Close-up of colour charts

    Precision mode

    Helps improve visual acuity2 by emitting a pool of high-intensity light. A CRI over 90 means colours are displayed very close to daylight quality.

  • Dyson task light on desk with man working

    Study mode

    Surpasses the recommended light levels for studying2 and adjusts its colour temperature in relation to your local daylight.

  • Woman reading in bed beside Dyson task light

    Relax mode

    Provides a warm, relaxing colour temperature with low intensity which is still bright enough for reading.

The right light, at your fingertips

The Lightcycle™ task light has been engineered for flexibility and simplicity, with intuitive manual controls.

  • Demonstration of 3 Axis Glide™ motion

    3 Axis Glide™ motion

    A gentle touch of the arm precisely positions your light – vertically, horizontally, and through 360°. With no springs or pivots to wear out, there's no drooping.

    Slide-touch controls

    Slide-touch controls let you define your personal brightness and colour temperature.

Beautiful Product with inspiring design

Lightcycle Desk Light Review

I recently bought this expensive light which is often criticised for being a very expensive product. However, it depends on what you want it for. I decorate my study/music room ...

with unique products especially the products that are meticulously designed and engineered. It gives a different experience to the people who visit the room and question about my collection and I feel equally great when I explain them and why I bought something. I use this lamp for multiple things, I record my piano performances and need a good lighting on top to give that visual appeal. I also sometimes read while I use my standing desk and my dyson lightcycle gives the perfect light I need for reading. Another use is - I sometimes use just the lamp light(not the down lights in the room) when I need enough/minimum light on top of my laptop over my standing desk. The ability to adjust the height and position with 360 rotation is great for getting the precisely where I need. I love the mobile connectivity also but I consider that as a bonus and not really something that I use often.

I have a lot of creative work to do in my day to day job. It can sometimes takes hours or days or weeks to create something that satisfies me and others. And therefore I have empathy towards what it takes to design a creative product such as this.
Appreciating creativity and marvel of engineering is a choice. I chose to appreciate this product. This is not a commodity and probably not for everyone or people looking just for lamp.

If you love it, you will rationalise spend on this.

I highly recommend this beautiful product!


Yes, but the light cannot track your local daylight until you connect to the app.

No, the copper heat pipe is cool enough to touch at all times.

No, the LEDs are designed to last for decades and can't be replaced.1
