From Studio Atùppertù, a lamp that captures light and converts it into reusable light. "By utilising photoluminescent pigments to capture escaping light, Trap Light converts waste energy back into visible light." More at Trap Light Save Energy.


"Photoluminesence is a process in which energy absorbed by a substance is gradually released as light. Using the Murano glass blowing technique, the designers were able to embed photoluminescent pigments into the glass body of the lamp."

"Through this process, Trap Light becomes both shade and light source, emitting, absorbing, and re-emitting light. 30 minutes 'charge' of recycled light from a traditional incandescent or LED light bulb provides up to 8 hours of ambient lighting."
