DSNL / Lighting

DSNL
DSNL

Day Shade Night Light (DSNL), is a sun umbrella in daytime and a lamp in nighttime.
It is built with two main materials: flexible solar panel and flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED).

Solar power from the sun are turned into electricity by solar panels on the top of DSNL. The electricity is then stored in the handle via the umbrella frame.

By simply turning the switch on the handle during nighttime, OLEDs delivers a unique lightening experience. DSNL itself then becomes an lamp that can lighten the whole room. Users can also adjust the intensity of the light by turning the handle, providing an even more customizable experience.
