When people think of mainstream solar lamps they should be thinking of the QBIC Lamp. The QBIC Lamp is a minimalist and modern solar lamp designed by Lorenzo Giacomini. The lamp is a simple white cube with a battery that can last for up to five hours.
The kicker with the QBIC Lamp is that it can only be used when it detects darkness. This prevents the battery from being drained by daylight use and also makes it more functional as you won't have to worry about impromptu charging at night should you accidentally leave it on all day. The smooth and minimalist shape of the lamp makes it much more eye-pleasing than the current crop of solar-powered lamps with their large solar panels and cheap-looking designs.
