Latitude Lights Solar Powered Light by Nina Edwards Anker

Home > Winners > #52049


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Latitude Lights

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Solar Powered Light

INSPIRATION:
Latitude Light is a concept directly related to the design philosophy of NEA Studio : technical innovation and eco efficiency should be celebrated through design and be part of it.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Latitude Light is a solar powered lamp that can be 3D printed according to the customer’s location. The lamp’s geometry is updated in a digital file so that the tilt of the solar panel changes according to latitude. By tilting the panel at different angles, the lamp’s capacity for electric power generation is optimized. The lamp needs to bathe in daylight during the day and lights up automatically at dark, glowing gradually brighter from dusk to fall of darkness.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The lamp operates entirely by itself. It charges during day, and automatically starts glowing at night.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The latitude light has been an on-going project development since 2014 and has known many iterations. It was presented in 2016 at the ICFF in New York City and at the Hamptons Contemporary Design Fair in Southampton, NY.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Latitude lights are 3d printed in 1mm thick transclucent polyamid after being custom shaped on a 3D modeling software according to the customer's location. The solar panels come with an electrical device and a battery that process and store the solar energy.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Solar panel : 7cm x 7cm amorphous thin film solar panel Material : 1mm thick translucent polyamid - comes in different colors. Dimensions; 13cm W - 13cm D - 13cm H

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Latitude Light is the result of years of research in both electrical/mechanical engineering and 3d printing technologies/materials.

CHALLENGE:
Latitude Light is very complex product in the way that it combines different technologies and innovations in one small object : - Solar powered device had to be adjusted to a small scale. - The design was conceived to adapt (and be optimized) for each latitude. - It's unusual to find 3d printed finished products on the market, so we had to make sure that the quality of the material would be equivalent to other Lamps:durability, water-tightness,etc.
