Motion Lamp concept sheds light on design

By - August 2, 2012 5 Pictures
The importance of lighting can often be overlooked, but selecting the right illumination for each situation is actually rather important. Using a computer in the near-dark or reading without a suitable lamp can cause eyestrain, while creating the right mood can also be achieved by choosing the correct color, tone, and brightness. One light to suit every single situation doesn't exist, but the Motion Lamp from designer Gergo Kassai tries to its hardest to achieve this impossible task. Read More

Stackable Tetris Light creates a pixelated desk sculpture

It's safe to say that almost anyone who has played a video game has felt the pull of Tetris at some point. There's just something about the simple, yet addictive puzzle game that draws people in for hours and has even prompted MIT students to recreate it with a whole building.

Streetlamps burn all night long, 365 nights a year, yet they also spend all day soaking up the Sun’s rays. This combination of regular usage alternating with sunlight exposure would seem to make them ideal candidates for the solar-power treatment.

Spain’s University of Seville, however, has developed a streetlamp that harnesses the power not only of sunlight, but also of wind. Read More

Flaca stainless steel lamp is an exemplar of green design

By - January 20, 2012 8 Pictures
As a founding member of Desk Lamp Fetishists Anonymous, it was with great interest (read cold sweats) that I learned about the stainless steel Flaca desk lamp by Mexico's Masiosare Studio. Yes, the stainless steel is sexy, and the 6 W power consumption - courtesy of twelve LEDs - ticks the green boxes, but most exciting is the fact that the Flaca comes as a flat piece of laser-cut steel that the user then bends into shape. We at the DLFA are nuts for flat-pack tool-less assembly, you see. Read More

Although we have entered 2012 approximately 1.5 billion people around the globe remain without access to a stable or safe source of light. Commonly in some of the world's poorest regions, kerosene lanterns are the standard form of night time lighting, which leads to the possibility of fires, explosions, asphyxiation and toxic fumes. Cheap, accessible solar lighting presents an obvious solution to this problem and the latest tilt at making this a reality is WakaWaka - a solar LED lamp concept that can fit snuggly onto a soda bottle.
