LITHOLUX A lamp that lights up when you turn it off ! Lamp and table made with recycled plastic bottles and luminescent aggregates In view of the climate change events, I propose a reflection to act eco-logically: turn off the lights ! I propose furniture with photoluminescent minerals to illuminate and save energy

LITHOLUX - ENERGY TRANSITION PROJECT OF THE CITIES In view of the climate change events that we have been experiencing for a few years I propose a reflection to act eco-logically: turn off the lights! The earth regenerates and the furniture having stored light during the day, will give a luminous halo at night. I propose furniture with photoluminescent minerals to naturally illuminate and save energy. The new photoluminescent elements will naturally illuminate spaces without the need for electricity, contributing to the preservation of energy and the environment. We do not offer objects but a concept: create light markers by photoluminescence with luminescent furniture. The furniture consists of a lamp and a table, both of which are made with recovery plastic bottles. Our project is a reflection on the reuse of materials as well as an alternative to space lighting without the use of electricity. Its concept is innovative and opens the gap on the manufacturing economy with salvage materials. The function is twofold: to illuminate and guide when the lamp is turned off. The life of the lamp continues with dreams at night.
