Dyson Lightcycle Morph: First impression of the 749 Euro floor lamp

Transform. Change. Adapt.

Do you remember the announcement from January? Almost two months ago, Dyson introduced a new product in the lighting segment: the Lightcycle Morph. Not necessarily the successor to the Lightcycle launched last year, but much more an alternative.

The company has virtually added another shovel to the mix and now offers two more variants with the Morph. A desk lamp for 549 euros and a floor lamp for 749 euros. This is everything but a bargain, but I still wanted to have a look at the technical tricks the British manufacturer has come up with.

Before I will have a closer look at the floor lamp in the coming weeks and then get back to you in more detail, I wanted to inform about my first impression today.

Dyson Lightcycle Morph can be used for different purposes

I can at least confirm Dyson’s three points “Transform. Transform. “Adapt.” The Lightcycle Morph with its fully rotatable head can be used in three different ways: for direct lighting, for example, when working or reading, for indirect lighting of walls or objects and for ambient lighting with a soft light.

Especially that last possibility fascinates me, because it is a simple, but ingenious idea: the lamp head docks magnetically to the shaft, with the light penetrating through small holes in the stand. This looks pretty good even during the day in a bright room, but in the evening this effect should be much stronger.

But there is also a detail that I don’t like that much: the stand and also a part of the lamp head are made of plastic in piano lacquer look. At least my black version quickly turned out to be a dust magnet. But I can imagine that this is not as noticeable in the Morph model in white/silver.

There is a lot more to discover with the Dyson Lightcycle Morph. For example the automatic adjustment of the color temperature throughout the day, the integrated motion sensor and of course the app connection. I need a little more time to delve into all details. At the same time I would like to give you the opportunity to post your questions and thoughts under this article so that I can take them up for my review.
