The StudyLite LED rechargeable solar lamp–billed as “the world’s first ‘Safe for Eyes’ certified rechargeable study light for children”–recently won the coveted Red Dot Design Award for product design excellence. The competition takes place annually, with submissions hailing from all over the world.
This unique, ring-shaped desk lamp–which comes to us by way of The Design Blog–features no ultra-violet light or infra-red radiation. (Most of us had no idea our every day indoor lighting exposes us to such wavelengths, but apparently it does.) This makes the Solar StudyLite better for kids (and presumably adults as well) facing long study sessions, supplying “perfect luminosity and ideal illumination,” eliminating eye-strain.
The lamp was was based on a study by a eye research institute aimed at reducing the stress on the eyes of the children during extended study sessions, and was also designed to overcome the issue of unsteady or intermittent power supplies in developing nations. The StudyLite offers 100,000 of light over its lifetime, as well as six hours of light on a single solar charge.
