Flywheel Lamp / The lighting concept

Flywheel Lamp
Flywheel Lamp

Flywheel Lamp is a product concept designed to create a good learning environment for children in poor areas. The inspiration comes from the pull-wire Flywheel and energy conversion. Because many poor parts of Africa and Asia lack electricity, many homes lack even essential lighting at night. The Flywheel Lamp converts the kinetic energy generated by spinning wheels at high speeds into electricity and stores it to provide a source of light for children at night.
