Off-Grid Lamps
by Klemens Schillinger

Leonhard Hilzensauer

Klemens Schillinger has designed a hand-operated LED lamp to be used as a torch.

The lamp is not connected to the power grid. Instead, a hand-operated crank generator allows the user to produce light using their own physical input.

With the help of modern LED technology and a rechargeable battery, the lamp can be used as a modern torch.

One minute of cranking produces light for more than six minutes. The principle is simple: whoever gives something gets something in return.


This project has been longlisted in the lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
