Latitude Lights Wood

Latitude Light is a solar lamp made from local recycled materials. The light can be assembled in various ways into screens or blown up to inhabitable scale.

Two interlocking cubes forms the basic design module. Latitude Light is designed around the material characteristics required by the specified amorphous thin-film photovoltaic panel as a starting point. The lamp is dimensioned to frame the solar panel (15x15cm) and accompanying batteries, wires and LED lights. The PV panels' angles are updated for fabrication according to an ideal tilt for optimal annual power collection in the specified location (41 degrees for NY, NY). The lamps display a range of local recycled materials, where weathered matte materials (teak, Corten steel and green copper) contrast with the new glossy solar panels, and reflective materials
