Candela

Candela

Candela is a hybrid object: a lamp that combines the analogue and the digital, tradition and technology. The type, recalling Scandinavian lamps, hides innovation that illuminates without wires and recharges smartphones through a USB port. Everything revolves around the Seebeck effect (a thermoelectric reaction in which electricity is generated from a difference in temperature): the flame produced by the combustion of bio-ethanol, a natural liquid extracted from agricultural products rich in sugar, gives off heat that can power LED lights. The 2 or 3 Watts produced guarantee the device's self-sufficiency.
