- The Argentine designer Francisco Gomez Paz has designed a light wind which, without power from the wall outlet, a phone can be charged. Candela, who is listed by Dezeen Magazine at the design fair in Milan, makes its own electricity by means of a flame on bioethanol.
The environmentally friendly fuel ensures a smoke and odorless flame, which supplies energy to power LED lights on and to charge a phone through a USB port. The electricity is stored in the bulb, so charging can also happen if the lamp is off.
Danish-Italian lamp brand ASTEP looks for Candela potential for use in cafés, restaurants, waiting rooms and home.
