Comments Off on Glowing Pendant Lamp Powered by Ambient Light

At the Milan Furniture Fair, a cool new pendant lamp design was unveiled today.  The Trap Light, as it’s called, absorbs waste energy from surrounding ambient light sources during the day and then glows at night without ever being plugged in. The hand-blown glass of the Trap Light is embedded with the photoluminescent pigments during its production.  The pigments store energy from light bulbs (LED, CFL or incandescent) present in the same room.  Only 30 minutes of exposure to surrounding light is needed for the lamp to glow for eight straight hours
