Jake Dyson

Jake Dyson

Jake leads a small team of experienced design engineers in his studio. 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.

Jake studied Industrial Design at Central St Martins College of Art and Design. He graduated in 1994 and began work designing retail interiors, working on shops, cafes and clubs. Jake then set up his own workshop, purchasing a mill and a lathe and started experimenting and developing products. His studio and workshop are now based in Clerkenwell.

Jake Dyson and his Motorlight

Jake is happiest in the workshop trying to turn a paper concept into a reality and is proud that Motorlight is British designed and developed. His approach is to first conceive a product and control all processes through to 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.


According to specialists, it has soothing and relaxing properties, only due to the slow motion of the constant movement from the body of the lamp.

Jake Dyson is the real proof of the "Like Father Like Son" adage. The offspring of James Dyson, the inventor of the eponymous vaccum cleaner, Jake launched his own design studio in 1994. This is where the motorlight was born, a motorised lamp of which the body gracefully moves up and down at a constant speed, aesthetically varying the dimensions of the projected light beam.
