JOHN

Clear Thinking

Flexibility

Keep light nimble

JOHN is a masterpiece of Tobias Grau engineering, providing outstanding flexibility and quality of motion, so you can illuminate a chosen surface, object, or area with agility and precision.

Flexibility

With its streamlined body, rotatable lamp head, and two fluid spring joints, JOHN is designed to move. With the lightest of touches, the lamp is effortlessly raised, lowered, and rotated, so you can adapt and angle your light according to situation and mood.

Outstanding Light Quality

Uncompromising brilliance

JOHN’s high-performance LEDs and state-of-the-art optical lens beams beautiful, adaptable and de-glared light at maximum energy efficiency.

Outstanding Light Quality

Cutting-edge LEDs provide powerful illumination of 700 / 850 / 950 / 1000 Lumen at AA+ energy efficiency.

JOHN’s optical lens fragments and directs light to create an optimal, glare-free environment for reading and working.

With three taps on the smart switch, the lamp activates warmDIM mode, automatically adjusting adjusts colour temperature to brightness. Dim up and JOHN beams a crisp, bright light - ideal for daytime focus. Dim down, and the light softens to a gentle evening glow.

An outstanding Colour Rendering Index of > 90 delivers a top colour spectrum, capturing the richness and subtleties of colours and textures with vibrancy and precision.

Color Change

Adapt light to mood and situation

Our Tunable White technology offers total flexibility and personalisation of light intensity and colour, so you can separately adjust both the brightness and the warmth of your lamp light.

Color Change

With a light colour range from 3500 K to 2200 K, integrated Tunable White technology brings even more versatility to JOHN. A simple double tap on the lamp switch presents four different levels of light colour and intensity – from a crisp light for daytime tasks to a softer glows for reading or bedside illumination.

Intuitive Use

Light to work with

JOHN is designed for ultimate ergonomic use, with effortless adjustment to desired light settings.

Intuitive Use

Our intuitive smart switch offers quick and easy adjustment through different light settings. Tap once to turn the lamp off or on. Hold to dim up or down. Tap twice to adapt light colour. Tap three times to activate warmDim.

JOHN comes with a USB-C connector and cable for easy and universal installation.
