Hello! And thanks for checking out this Kickstarter project!
The AmbientOne LED Table Lamp is the first product to be designed and produced by Highlight Design, a small innovation studio based in Omaha, Nebraska. We started with lighting design because it's a great challenge. Our goal
was to create a lamp that could seamlessly fit into a wide range of
contemporary settings and produce clean and inviting light.
Design + Features
The AmbientOne is designed to be an environmentally conscious
alternative to incandescent
based table lamps. Its uses sixteen outwardly facing high brightness
LEDs to create an omnidirectional output that is capable of filling
living and work spaces with warm, inviting light. While the AmbientOne
only draws 19 Watts of power, it has a light output comparable to a 75
Watt incandescent bulb!
The AmbientOne's custom hardware that
powers and controls the LEDs is specially designed to maximize
brightness while maintaining energy efficiency. The hardware
also incorporates a full range sliding dimmer, giving the user total
control of the light output. A custom heatsink attached to the LEDs
allows for consistent heat removal, ensuring optimal operating temperature and
longevity. The installed hardware is designed to last the lifespan of
the LEDs, which is estimated at over 30 years!
Locally Made + Environmentally Conscious Construction
The AmbientOne is
made locally in and around Omaha, Nebraska, by skilled craftsmen and
machinists. Each lamp is hand assembled, numbered and signed.
Great care has been taken to choose materials that are high
quality and durable, while still being environmentally responsible.
Why LEDs? How are they different?
have been generating a lot of buzz, but what are they? An LED or
Light Emitting Diode, is a small semi-conductor that produces light when
a voltage is applied across it. So why would you want an LED lamp?
LED light sources use significantly less energy than a conventional
incandescent bulb. In addition they are projected to last 30 times
longer, and LEDs produce very little radiant heat. What
this means is that with the AmbientOne's LED based light source, you
will help preserve the environment by using less energy, never have to
replace the bulb (at least not for a really long time), and can sit
under the lamp all day without it heating you or the surroundings up!
