Table Lamp is the first product we plan to introduce to our eco-friendly product line, EcoDeco. This is a
very high quality table lamp with
built-in energy efficient LEDs and is constructed with almost
half of its contents in recycled materials and over
98% of the contents are readily recyclable materials. The stylish, contemporary design has been created by our design team in Barcelona. This lamp will highlight
your home with style. Last but not least, it is
Here is a brief explanation for those of you who are new to Kickstarter. The pledges you make entitle you for the corresponding rewards. The pledges have nothing to do with investment in neither the company nor the products. So simply pick the reward you like and make the pledge. In addition, the pledges are not effective until Feb 15th and only if the total amount raised is over $20,000. Every pledge you make is significant in making our dream come true. Your action will make the difference.
Your help in spreading the word of this project is much appreciated.

How are EcoDeco lamps truly
All our lamps use energy efficient LEDs. LEDs
use 85% less power than incandescent light bulbs and 30% less power than
florescent tubes or light bulbs. In
addition, LEDs do not contain any mercury like florescent tubes and bulbs do. LEDs have a
typical lifespan of 30,000 hours or more. This is equal to the lifespan of 30
incandescent bulbs. Using 6
hours per day and365 days per year, a LED lamp
will last over 13 years. That is why the LEDs in our lamps are not designed to be replaceable.
We maximize the use of recycled materials and
materials which are readily recyclable.We believe the best way to reduce the
consumption of raw materials is to re-use the old ones. Every part we produce
with recycled materials reduces the consumption of primary materials by that
much. In addition, we prefer using
readily recyclable materials unless there are no suitable alternatives.
example, here are the key materials used in our first lamp, Ah-Bre:
100% Recycled ABS – usage by weight in the whole product is around 45%. It is used in the lamp base, the dimmer control cover, the lamp post and the lamp shade holder.
Polycarbonate – usage by weight in the whole product is around 45%. It is used in the lamp shade and the LED cover. We will switch to using recycled material if we can find a good alternative.
Aluminum – usage by weight in the whole product is around 5%. It is used in the heat sink and the printed circuit board for the LED module. According to the International Aluminium Institute, recycling of aluminum products needs as little as 5% of the energy comparing with production of primary aluminum. Recycling is a major aspect of continued aluminum use, as more than a third of all the aluminum currently produced globally originates from scrap. It is reasonable to say that over 30% of the aluminum used in our products is recycled material.
All of the above materials are readily recyclable. Other low usage materials in our lamps such as steel, copper and silicon are also readily recyclable. Overall, over 98% of the materials used in our lamps can be readily recycled.
We never use any materials which are toxic or
any coating materials which content heavy elements. All our materials and
paints comply with the US CPSC requirements for toys. We want to be sure that
our products are safe beyond typical lamps.
We minimize the usage of packaging materials
protection for shipping. We maximize the usage of recycled materials in our
packaging such as carton inserts and shipping cartons. We do not use Styrofoam
(EPS) due to the low efficiency in recycling this material and a very high
percentage of EPS ending up in the landfills. We will stop using polybags in
our packaging as soon as we can find a good substitute.
Who are we?
This project is a
collaboration of three partners in different countries but sharing the same enthusiasm
for high quality, eco-friendly and stylish products.
Kimmel runs a
marketing and manufacturing company for over 20 years using state of the art equipment in Florida. With the warehousing facilities in Florida, his company will provide the US order
fulfilment support for the web-shop we plan to set up after the completion of
this project. His manufacturing facilities may also be suitable for new
products we will be developing.
Stimulo is a
product design company in Barcelona,
have created many successful products in a variety of categories
years. Besides their creativity, their knowledges of the technical aspect of the products
help them creating products with a good balance of style and functionalities such as the Ah-Bre
Yen has started his company 15
years ago in Hong Kong providing
services in product development, production control and quality assurance for
clients in the US, Europe and Japan. He has a passion for high quality products
with cool designs such as the Artemide lights and Philippe Starck designs.
However, the very high prices have made these products almost like art pieces
affordable only by the collectors and museums. It is his dream to offer
products with cool designs at affordable
prices and combining eco-friendliness thinking into the products.
What is the status of the project and why do we need your
is fully developed with prototypes already tested. We are ready to start the
tooling and to place the first production order. We have managed raising the
fund needed for the tooling but we are short by $20,000 for the first order. With
your supports, we can proceed with the tooling, the first production order and
to set up our web-shop offering more of these eco-friendly products.

are reserving some of the units from the first production run as rewards at
very attractive prices. The normal price we plan to offer the Ah-bre table lamp
on our web-shop will be around $100. In addition we have come up with a limited
edition for those who want something different for this special event. We have
limited the quantity of all rewards available so that we can be sure we will
deliver the rewards on time.
Risks and challenges
If the funding of this project is successful, there are still the following steps before the rewards are ready to be dispatched to you. These steps involve different parties which require many months of concentrated effort and follow-up to be sure every step goes as planned. This is a big challenge we have to face up to.
- Start tooling for mass production
- Place first order and start procurement of parts
- Final approval of pre-production samples
- Start production for the first order
- Pre-shipment inspection of finished goods
- Shipment of inspected goods to the US warehouse
- Shipping out of the rewards from our US warehouse
Fortunately, the electronic circuit design has been completed and the complete unit has been life tested for many months without any problem. As all the part drawings are ready, we are ready to proceed with the production tools immediately. Our project management team will monitor closely the mold making process with multiple on-site visits. Our project engineer will work closely with the mold shop engineers along with our own quality assurance engineer to make sure the testing and the debugging of the samples from pre-production pilot runs will be executed effectively and efficiently.
After the approval of the final pre-production samples by our project management according to our quality specifications and applicable international safety standards, we will proceed immediately with production. Our quality control staff will monitor the production processes and sample checking the production to make sure all products will comply with our strict requirements.
We have set a limited quantity for each reward so that we would not be surprised by overwhelming responses. With over 15 years of project management, quality assurance and quality control experiences for multi-million units shipped worldwide, we feel confident we will execute our task satisfactorily on schedule.
