Those living in developing parts of the world without access to electricity could benefit immensely from the Play & Lighting Lamp as an effective piece of equipment to help illuminate their living space without the need for an outlet.

The lamp features a toy-like design that enables a child to spin and turn it as a form of play that will transfer the kinetic power into battery power for the lamp. A single minute of swinging will provide around 10-minutes of illumination, which means that an average play session for a child could easily offer hours of illumination for a family.

The Play & Lighting Lamp is the design work of Sanghoon Yoon and is the winner of the Student Design Award at the 2016 iF Design Awards.
