Flat Pack Pocket Light & The Martyr Lamp

The mobile pocket light concept designed by Hyun Jin Yoon & Eun Hak Lee seems to be the perfect solution to those dark nights. Credit card sized it fits neatly into your wallet/purse until you need some power packed illumination. sweet,

or, for another playful little luminaire is the Martyr Lamp ‘The energy saving fundamentalist’ by The Play Coalition.

They have also designed the Plant-Bot, which orients itself to gather sunlight, which kinda offsets the freakiness of the previous CNC robot post.

    Do you have a link for more information about those flat-pack lamps? It looks like they’ve been created to turn on when you fold the bulb into the ‘up’ position – is that correct? It’s a neat idea, and I’m curious how they created it…

  2. Duann Says:

    Yeah, it does turn on when you bend the card, http://www.ratemyideas.com/story.php?title=Pocket_Light to rate their design. There is also another similar that I believe is in production.
    Unfortunately I could not find their original site or contact details..

    IF I find out more about this or the other version I will post an update.

    […] The previous post on the flat pack pocket lamp generated a bit of interest, but unfortunately I cannot get in contact with the designers to pass on their details to interested parties. A similar concept developed by Sander Mulder is the Eureka Light, another flat pack light bulb, though not quite credit card sized, perhaps if you all flood him with orders he may start producing them??? Made from a laser cut sheet of aluminum, in combination with a high power led, this clever designed lamp operates on 2 button cells. As a design object in traditional postcard format, it can be shipped by regular mail to your family, friends and relations. Made from off-the-shelves parts, combined with a sheet of aluminum in a clever way, it transforms with one single twist into an ambient lighting fixture. You can purchase the light from his site, but while you are there check out some of his other cool laser cut lighting designs. //OBSTART:do_NOT_remove_this_comment var OutbrainPermaLink=”http://blog.ponoko.com/2008/11/13/eureka-light/”; var OB_demoMode = false; if(typeof(OB_Script)!=’undefined’){ OutbrainStart(); }else{ var OB_Script = true; var OB_langJS =”http://widgets.outbrain.com/lang_en.js”; document.write (“”); } //OBEND:do_NOT_remove_this_comment […]
