We began experimenting light in order to see how can we “draw” and “capture”, "compress" and "expand" it. The idea came from watching the way a syringe works, and then we replaced the liquid with light, which brought a surprising result to the table.

When seeing the effect of what happens when "compressing” and “expanding” the light, we began investigating and searching which shape and material would bring out the light in the best way. We decided to make the top and bottom of the lamp from wood. We chose beech wood because of its warm elements, we believe that wood brings a pleasant feel to one’s home.The middle part of the lamp, the tube, is made from durable plastic.

After creating many prototypes we decided to go with two different versions of the lamp. One which can be played with by twisting a large wooden bolt, and the other by pushing and pulling a wooden lever, all for “expanding” and “compressing” light.

To begin with, we produced the first sample in our wood workshop, and then we decided to start looking for an agent who was able to provide mass production in woodturning techniques.

It took us a long time to find a woodturning craftsman that can provide us with the level of precision and quality that we required. We partnered with a  brilliant woodturning manufacturer, and began the sample process.

Thereafter we began searching for a supplier that could construct an LED lighting circuit with very specific instructions. The require that the light be turned “off” when the lever is lowered to the bottom the lamp’s body, and turned “on” when drawing the lever up from the bottom of the lamp’s body. After receiving the first LED circuit batch we assembled the lamp and started using ourselves, as a reading light in our bedroom. We understood that the lamp must be turned on and off without a switch, so we asked our supplier to create a new circuit that would allow us to push and pull the lever, and thus allow the light to turn on and off.

Our goal was to provide a lamp which would be the safest with regard to its electricity usage. Therefore we decided to use an LED circuit which has a 24 Volt usage capacity. 

The first line of the DiMO lamps was produced in our workshop. With your contributions, we’ll be able to expand and develop the DiMO line even further, which will allow us to bring our lamp to customers, design shows, and stores worldwide.

Risks and challenges

We've spent a lot of time building partnership with an experienced manufacturer to mitigate as many risks as possible, but we know there will still be unexpected challenges along the way. We will always be transparent and inform our backers of potential hurdles along the way.

SHIP DATE
We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates. We will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.

PRODUCT
We have taken the following steps to ensure that we deliver the best quality product:
- Built over 30 working prototypes. We will only make design refinement to enhance the product experience.
- Extensively tested prototypes for performance and durability. This includes manufacturing the electrical components to meet UL safety and performance standards.

MANUFACTURING
We have established relationships with experienced contract manufacturers to mitigate the risk of delays by material suppliers and to ensure quality control is implemented to the highest level. We have built test prototypes with our manufacturer and they fully understand our product, specifications and production timeline.
