Latitude Light, Wood or Recycled Steel Contemporary, Solar-Powered, Customizable



Latitude light is an indoor or outdoor solar-powered lamp that emits atmospheric light. It can be fabricated in many variants according to the customer’s location and color preference. A global product that is customized for specific locations, the lamp’s geometry can be automatically updated in a digital file so that the tilt of the solar panel changes according to latitude. By tilting the panel at different angles, the light’s capacity for electric power generation is optimized in its perpendicularity to the sun’s rays for different latitudes. Two intersecting cubes measuring 7 x 7 x 7 inches each form the solar-powered lamp. The amorphous thin film panel is tilted at different angles according to latitude for optimal power collection. For example, the panel is tilted at 45 degrees for New York City, 25 degrees for Dubai, and 59 degrees for Oslo. The portable light needs to bathe in daylight for eight hours a day, with the solar panel facing the sky. Latitude lights illuminate automatically at dusk. The light is designed around the material characteristics required by the specified amorphous thin-film photovoltaic panel as a starting point. It is dimensioned to frame the solar panel (6 x 6 inches) and accompanying batteries, wires and LED lights. Latitude lights display a range of local recycled materials and positions according to desired light effects. The LEDs can be placed in various positions, pointing upward, downward or sideways depending on site. Local situation, climate and culture may determine use and experience of color and material. Weathered matte materials such as teak, corten steel and green copper contrast with the reflective solar panels.
