Jake Dyson studied Industrial Design at the prestigious Central St Martins College of Art and Design following a foundation course at Filton College, Bristol. He graduated in 1994 and began work designing retail interiors for two high profile designers, working on shops, cafes and clubs. Jake then set up his own workshop, purchasing a mill and a lathe and started experimenting with a revolutionary new ceiling fan. His studio today is based in Clerkenwell and has a workshop attached. Jake is happiest when in the workshop trying to turn a paper concept into a reality and is particularly proud that Motorlight is British designed and developed. His approach is to first conceive a product and follow it through to the point of manufacture – unusual in a world where product design is usually separate from the development and manufacturing side. Jake believes that having a “hands on” approach to creating prototypes, testing and subsequently finishing products is an essential part of the design process. Jake Dyson’s Studio is lead by the young product designer with a small team of design engineers. They focus their efforts on coming up with new product ideas that are visually stunning and go where no one has gone before in providing innovative, functional benefits. The result is Motorlight – a cleverly engineered light, which provides both a broad ambient and precisely focused illumination for active mood lighting. With a remote control (that controls up to 30 lights), Motorlight Wall can be set to move gradually between an angle of 10 and 120 degrees or fixed at any point in between. When multiple lights are placed in a configuration, it provides part light sculpture, part light source. Described by Terence Conran as “beautifully engineered and delicious to look at”, the Motorlight family includes the Motorlight Floor (free-standing) and Motorlight Wall models, which will launch to both the commercial and residential markets in the U.S. during ICFF 2009.
