LighTable / Table with dynamo lamp


We started analyzing situations when people are obliged to live surrounded by nature and we decided to focus on ones caused by wars. Examining the events unfold, we split the after-emergency timeline in three periods: first aid, accommodation and permanence. Since the last period of time receives less care, we decided to focus on that particular moment, when the situation in the refugee camp is stabilized.
With our project we try to solve the lack of energy problem relating it with the safety
perceived by the refugees: here it comes the idea of a table with an illumination point,
activated with a dynamo, that could get together a family.
