If you are looking for lighting that uses an alternative energy source, these lamps are perfect. These clever LED hourglass lamps provide a great alternative energy source for lighting. The lamps are powered by the sand that falls slowly through the hourglass. These hourglass LED lamps prove that laws of science can provide an alternative energy source and the power of creativity can create amazing concepts.

The Designer Danielle Trofe has created something that is aesthetically pleasing that also uses science and physics in a very unique way. The lamp is simple; when you flip the hour glass-shaped lamp, the falling sand generates kinetic energy which is then converted into electricity that powers the LED lights. These lamps are not only eco-friendly but they also give a modern look to your favorite places.
