Harnessing Kinetic energy to solve lighting problem

Danielle Trofe has combined aesthetics with pure science in her beautifully designed LED Hourglass lamps that are powered by the kinetic energy of falling sand! A brilliant self sustaining lamp…She has found a beautiful way of putting across a fact to the consumers that the source of energy will end unless we work towards preserving it.


The shape of the lamps are like hourglass and the lamps need to be flipped to continue working and require the user’s involvement to stimulate awareness of the finite nature of lighting energy sources. The lamp works on the simple principle of falling sand and is also solar powered to have a back up.
