Once upon a time the candles were the main and indispensable companion of the night life of our ancestors. In their the dim light can reading, write poetry, do a declaration of love. Today, the once invaluable helpers of wax used, rather, to create a romantic atmosphere, or in the case of a power outage. But modern designers have decided to combine the past and present of candles feature. And finally invented an environmentally correct lamp that will work when other lights go out.
Lumir C – a unique LED-lamp, project of students-engineres from New York. It would seem, bedside lamps and lamps with LEDs is no surprise. But Lumir C does not look like her brothers. She does not need a power outlet or batteries. Her power supply – the good old candle. So now we can again read a book before going to sleep in a glow candlelight. And it does not spoil the sight.
To turn on the lamp, simply ignite any (suitable in size), a candle and place her “under the dome” – at the bottom of Lumir C. Heat of candle serves as a source of energy, and after a few seconds “lights” the LED light bulb.
Lumir C intensities sufficient for all the evening everyday needs, including for study and reading. And candles create a cozy relaxed atmosphere. Plus, you can always use a scented candle for even more relaxation. Wherein does not fear to create a fire hazard.
But the main advantage of the hybrid lamp that she does not need a power outlet or batteries. This makes Lumir C not only eco friendly (remember, at least as far as polluting disposal of batteries), but also a useful companion for trips and travels. No wonder it is a concept born at a time when the future founders, during a trip to India, collided with yet another global power outage.
Lumir C lamp has two modifications: “Mood”, which provides soft diffused light and “the Spot” with a more powerful (60 lm) lamp – “point”. Lumir C will be a perfect lamp for reading in bed.
