Our history of lighting for the individual began with the development of the L-1 task light in 1937. The freedom of movement, and the ability to place the light exactly where it was needed, forever changed the way task lights work.
L-1 was designed by Luxo’s founder, the engineer Jac Jacobsen, and is still in production today. The lamp arm is balanced by springs that work on the action and reaction principle of human arm muscles.
Modern range of arm-based task lights
Naturally, our range of products has been vastly expanded since those early days. However, the philosophy and knowledge from the development of the L-1 is still maintained in our modern products. Today, our range of task lights and other arm-based luminaires comprises a wide variety of arm technology, most notably with internal or external springs. They all have perfect balance, and careful ergonomics built into them. In fact, the aesthetics of the arm designs may be considered a quality in their own right.
The ability to place the light exactly where it is needed is a hallmark of a Luxo arm. The flexibility of arm and lamp head means that it is easy to adjust Luxo task lights for your personal needs. The arm construction ensures that the lamp head will always stay in the right position without drifting.
