Lumir C

Lumir C is a candle powered LED lamp, it uses no plugs, no batteries, simply one tiny tea light candle. The innovative and beautifully designed lamp uses it a tea light candle as an energy source to power a LED bulb, clever. Shaped like a miniature lighthouse, Lumir C comes in two versions: Mood and Spot, the first can be used as ambient lighting, the second is designed to light up a spot on the room, which can be done by adjusting the direction of the LED. The magic is possible thanks to a clever system, simply light up a tea candle, place the Lumir C right on top of it, and from there, the lamp will take care of converting the heat to electricity and powering the LEDs. watch the video below
