The sofa incorporates daybeds facing opposite directions. Its soft structure is filled with organic latex and lentil beans, which support the natural curves and movements of the body. The filling in the bean bags is very supportive, but also malleable enough to conform
A global product that is customized for specific locations, the lamp’s geometry can be automatically updated in a digital file so that the tilt of the solar panel changes according to latitude (by tilting the panel at different angles, the lamp’s capacity for electric power generation is optimized in its perpendicularity to the sun’s rays for different latitudes). The portable light needs to bathe in daylight for eight hours a day, with the solar panel facing the sky. Latitude Lights illuminate automatically at dusk.
Latitude Light is the winner of the 2018 Made in NYC Award and the 2017 A' Design Award. It is representative of nea studio's focus on sustainable design, material research, and technological innovation.
