Over the past ten years, Jake Dyson has developed ground-breaking lighting technologies. Now he’s advancing them further as part of Dyson, with the philosophy of solving the problems that others often ignore.
Jake Dyson studied product design at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London and subsequently worked as a retail designer. In 2004 he set up a small workshop in South West London equipped with a mill and a lathe, to produce his first commercial product – the Motorlight wall light. But it was improving and developing LED technology which captured his interest and became an area of focus for him and his team. Jake’s business became part of Dyson in 2015, and he is now a R&D Director of Dyson and sits on the board. He works with Dyson’s wider team of engineers and scientists in Malmesbury, UK, on future technology portfolios – in lighting and beyond. Jake Dyson is the eldest son of James Dyson, and is committed to the family business.
