Light Powered by YOU

Light Powered by YOU

Flashlights can be your best friend in a power outage, but the last thing you need are dead batteries, so it makes sense that it charge from the most reliable power source available… YOU! That’s precisely the inspiration behind the Lume flashlight. It uses peltier plates to turn heat from your hands into usable energy. Its sculptural design is also more ergonomic and encourages the user to keep it displayed and handy rather than hidden.

Light Up the City

Light Up the City

The conceptual Noise Power system explores the transformation of sound energy, specifically that of road traffic, into usable light. Designed to surround roadways, the solution harnesses energy produced by acoustic micro-vibrations which are passed through a sensitive membrane to a generator that provides electricity to low-voltage LEDs. The result is a large scale system that not only reduces noise pollution, but provides safety lighting powered by the very drivers that need it!

Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry Night

Like Stars on Earth is a very cute concept for camping lights. It is made up of two components that stay together thanks to magnetic integration. The design is such that one part stays out of the tent and the other inside. The magnets make it possible for you to position the lamp suitably and move it freely. The main innovation is that outer shell of the lamp is designed to enhance the glow of the LED light, making it easy for campers to find their way.
