First Light | US$PoA | www.postfossil.ch
are you always paranoid about a power melt down where we will be left without electricity? we probably could make do without electric power during the day but when the darkness descents upon us, we will at least need some light so that we can continue to bury ourselves in our books or whatever. that’s where you will need an ingenious contraption like the First Light. apart from knowing that it is light, the name doesn’t give away much of its wonder. the First Light is a self-powered lamp that shuns the need for wall outlet, batteries and even solar cells. instead, it uses a series of gears and cogs that are aided by a hanging weight system to continually generate kinetic energy that powers the lamp. besides being grid-power independent, the lamp is one heck of a great looking lighting. a glass lampshade sits over the gears and cogs, allowing its clever mechanism to mesmerize you in the process. the good news is, this limited edition lamp is something your money can buy. though, the price is quoted as “price upon request“, which usually signify a wallet-crunching price tag.
