Trap Ambient Spot Light proposes a radical new approach to lighting design. By utilising photo-luminescent pigments to capture escaping light, Trap Ambient Spot Light converts waste energy back into visible light. Photo-luminescence is a process in which energy absorbed by a substance is gradually released as light. Using the Murano glass blowing technique, we were able to embed photo-luminescent pigments into the glass body of the lamp. The addition of pigment to hand blown glass thus gives each Trap Ambient Spot Light its own unique pattern and glow. Through this process, Trap Ambient Spot Light becomes both shade and light source, emitting, absorbing, and re-emitting light. 30 minutes ‘charge’ of recycled light from a traditional incandescent or LED light bulb provides a few hours of ambient lighting. With Trap Ambient Spot Light, the designers illustrate, that by taking a fresh approach to traditional production methods and existing materials, they can create an engaging, new lighting experience whilst making the most of energy.
How Its Made
Trap Ambient Spot Light is made using glass, photo-luminescent pigments, and steel. Trap Ambient Spot Light can stand or hang and is equipped for use both indoors and outdoors. Trap Ambient Spot Light is 180 x 180 x 380mm (Ceiling Box 120 x 120mm) and is available with blue, white, or yellow cages.
