One other consideration that people place when they go eco-friendly and green is to retain the level of ambiance that their homes carry. Such is the concept that the Gravia Lamp aims to achieve outside the usual green standards that this new lighting that is cordless provides to people who consider them among their furnishings.
If there is one thing that should be noted, it should be the drive for people to conserve energy consumption and use lighting in the safest way possible. The Gravia lamp is sure to be a good buy especially for people who look at ambiance and conservation in the green compliant standards that we are now placing the world in for our own good.
We’re all looking for the next interesting eco-friendly offering, but I don’t think many of us considered the role gravity might have to play in lighting… except Virginia Tech’s Clay Moulton, designer of the Gravia lamp.
In basic terms, it makes use of a slow-falling mass to turn a rotor. This powers the 10 high-output LEDs which are diffused by an acrylic lens. Silent, cord free, soft lighting with an output equivalent to about 40 watts, just by moving some weights from the bottom of the elegant casing to the top.
