Ninety Light by Shawn Littrell


Stockholm Design Week: Norwegian lighting company Luxo has launched the Ninety Light by American designer Shawn Littrell, which they claim is the world's most efficient task light.

Unveiled at Stockholm Furniture Fair earlier this month, the lamp uses 4 LEDs, consumes just 6 watts and is designed to last 25 years.

Each 1.5 watt LED is surrounded by a reflector which the manufacturers claim doubles the amount of light falling on the working area, in comparison with earlier LED lights.

The low power consumption of the LEDs means the lamp head remains cool enough to touch even when the light is used at full brightness.

The following text is from Luxo:


Ninety is the world's most energy efficient, ergonomic task light. Using only 6W of LEDs, Ninety offers a bright, warm light with superb colour rendering.

It is dimmable and designed to last for 25 year in a regular office environment. You will never have to change a lamp again.

4x1.5 Watt LEDs
Total power consumption, 7,8W
Standby power consumption 0,6W
Colour temperature 3000 Kelvin
Colour rendering >90

    That is what we called “less is more”

  • Danny Fisk

    Perfect !! Just what I’ve been looking for. Where can I get one?

  • togon

    why are all the pictures showing the light switched off? What’s the use of it if it isn’t shown doing its job?

  • fBot

    Togon…I agree
    As usual the actual “light” coming from this thing seems to be an after thought.

  • Simple, clean and beautifully designed! When it hits the market I will have one on my desk…

    Togon & Fbot – although featuring it’s capabilities is ideal, it is often difficult to get a good photo of a lamp with the light on especially when it’s just being setup with a white back drop. A lot of the time they photoshop a light effect in – but that wouldn’t be accurate to it’s capabilities.

    OMG – amazing design, efficiency, simplicity – thank you for moving forward…

  • freeborja

    how does it compare in light output, and especially in PRICE to the 525$ Leaf by Herman Miller?

  • Daniel Fisher

    Classic yet modern, clean and elegant. I’ll buy it!


    I saw a demo of this product… WORKS EVEN BETTER THAN IT WORKS!
    Makes the LEAF look like a night-light…
    Good Color, good performance, low-energy too good to be true?

  • Is there a sconce or wall mounted version of this fixture with a different armature configuration but utilizing the same lighting technology?

  • boreme

    boring. this coat hanger with a base and a light has taken minimalism to a joke.
