Dyson to disrupt lighting marketplace in Canada

Dyson to disrupt lighting marketplace in Canada

Dyson, innovators behind the vacuum that never loses suction, has harnessed satellite technology to launch a light that (almost) never burns out – the Jake Dyson Light (, now available across Southern Ontario to the architectural lighting community, exclusively through Salex Inc. ( Developed by Jake Dyson (son of Dyson’s founder and chief engineer) and a team of lighting experts, the leading-edge light spent 10 years in development and is the first of its kind, using heat pipe technology to deliver efficient and aesthetically pleasing LED light.

Typically found in satellites, heat pipe technology used in the Jake Dyson Light draws heat away from the LED bulbs, allowing them to be positioned closely together to provide powerful and precise lighting. The Jake Dyson Light is designed to use a fraction of the energy of conventional halogen lights, while maintaining a light output of 648 lux. The high-powered LEDs are so energy efficient, each light stays bright for up to 144,000 hours — that’s 16 full years, even if it’s never switched off.

The range of design-forward lights, which includes CSYS task lights and Cu-Beam suspended lights, continues the Dyson legacy of balancing innovative tech with sleek, beautifully constructed minimalism. CSYS task lights are available in floor, clamp and desk models, in a variety of modern finishes. All use proprietary 3 Axis Glide motion, which allows the light to be positioned vertically, horizontally and rotationally. Cu-Beam suspended light technology utilizes a single LED, which projects powerful light precisely where it’s needed, with the same heat pipe technology to ensure efficiency and colour consistency.

All models of the Jake Dyson Light are available now in Southern Ontario through exclusive distributor Salex Inc.

Salex, the largest lighting agency in Southern Ontario, has been an integral player in Canada’s architectural lighting community for more than 40 years.
