An illuminating example of technology married with design, the Sphelar Solar Lantern is a beautiful piece of lighting that is eco-friendly as well. Utilizing advanced solar technology, the Sphelar Solar Lantern charges its spherical solar cells while in sunlight to light up your evening activities with its LED bulbs. When its winter season the lamp can be charged using a USB cable or an AC adapter. On a full charge, the lamp should last for approximately four hours.

The Sphelar Solar Lantern was designed in the shape of an hourglass by design studio 'graf.' The lamp comes in two different types of wood (birch or walnut) and that wood comes from sustainable forests.

The Sphelar Solar Lantern costs a cool $536. That's the price of high-end design matched with the latest solar technology these days.
