The lights that never seize to glow, even when switched off
Just recently, we came across the Zen, an eco-friendly lighting solution that requires no grid connections. Graduation students at the Design Academy Eindhoven have designed yet another eco-friendly way to light up, LED lights that continue to glow long after being switched off. Designed by Gionata Gatto and Mike Thompson, the lamps do look somewhat creepy, shedding an eerie glow after being switched off. Using hand-blown Murano glass, these lamps use a layer of photo-luminescent pigments that soak in the light when the LEDs are switched on, and glow when switched off.
Using similar principals of working like those glow-in-the-dark planets and asteroids you had stuck on the ceiling of your childhood bedroom; these lights continue to glow for up to 8 hours after being switched off!
