Design by Yves Béhar.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
With a design inspired by nature the Ardea Personal Light is simple, trim and infinitely adjustable. Placed on a side table, end table or home office desktop, Ardea lets you direct light right where you need it — on paperwork, a keyboard, or a good book. The low-energy compact mini-fluorescent lamp has a reflector for even illumination. It uses about a quarter of the electricity as an incandescent lamp and lasts 3 to 4 times longer. Ardea was developed according to Herman Miller's demanding protocol for minimal environmental impact and is 84% recyclable.
Ardea's energy-efficient 13-watt compact fluorescent lamp has a 3500° color temperature. It has a 120-volt magnetic ballast with a disconnect plug next to the ballast. The light extends up to 25", rotates 360°, and has an 8.5-foot cord. Mounting hardware is included. Hinges are continuous with the rigid structure; the aluminum extrusion is twisted in a new, innovative manufacturing process, giving the design a sculptural, organic flow as well as stability. Use the Ardea Personal Ligh anywhere — the flexible design allows light to be directed where you need it. It can be freestanding or clamped to a surface. Choose from five attachment options — the light hangs from a panel, frame, or rail tile; clamps to surface; or sits on a surface (see options). Available in four colors.
Light has a 0.3-amp draw. Light cannot mount in 90° corner or at an Action Office®, Ethospace®, or Vivo® 120° connection.
Material(s): Steel, aluminum, electronics, zinc and plastic. Ardea is up to 84% recyclable at the end of its useful life. It is comprised of 12% recycled materials. All die-cast aluminum components are made from 100% recycled material and are 100% recyclable.
Bulbs: 1 X 13W compact mini-fluorescent lamp (included)

"I believe design's purpose is not only to show us the future, but to bring us the future," he states.
