Statistics suggest that about 1.3 billion people are still living without electricity around the globe. While candles and kerosene lamps are the most used alternatives for brightening up the dark, it is believed about 2 million people die each year with respiratory diseases due to black carbon from kerosene lamps.
Idea and design
As a cool new way to help areas without electricity, or to give you a new and inspiring way to make your home lighting cozy; Lumir has developed Lumir C – a candle powered LED lamp.
Available in a neat design to fit any home settings just aptly;Lumir C is a LED light based cover that has to be placed over a lit candle. The LED in the Lumir C turns on only with heat of the candle and does not require batteries or external power. Lumir C basically works by converting temperature difference two different semi-conductors into electricity.
Lumir C is shaped after a lighthouse; not just in shape but also in purpose – like a lighthouse at sea, the Lumir C also lights up the dark at home. The lamp with burning candle in the base does more than just light up the space. Using your favorite scented candle can feel relaxed or create a wonderfully cozy mood at home.
