About this project
Lumir is a portmanteau word of 'Lumi' which means the light and 'Mir' which means the world. With a goal to light up the world, we invented our first product 'Lumir C'.
We could get KC, FCC, CE and RoHS certificates on Lumir C through last year and also we already have a Korean patent (USA patent pending).
Now we need your help to make our first production run. Thank you for your support!
: Simplicity ; Just putting Lumir C over a lighted candle will turn the LED on.
: No battery ; Batteries have been causing severe pollution to environment. But eco-friendly Lumir C doesn't use any batteries so it is free from that problem.
: Cordless ; It doesn't need any burden wire or outlets because your candle will make electricity instead. So you can use Lumir C anywhere you want such as in camping, on bedside or while decorating your house if you have just one candle.
: Simple design ; With our neat design, it fits everywhere.
*Tip : Using your favorite scented candle with Lumir C will make you feel relaxed.
We've come to know the seriousness of blackouts travelling throughout India. Though many households in developing countries still brighten the darkness with candle light, it is too dark to lead an everyday life with only one candle.
Therefore we agonized over the problem.
'What if they can light up a room with just one candle?'
We focused on the fact that most of fuel are spent as heat energy when a candle burn. By using the principle which is the conversion of temperature difference in two other types of semi-conductor directly into electricity, Lumir C turns LED on only with heat energy of the candle without external power supply.
- Brightness : 85lm
- Weight : 220g
- Product dimension : 4.3” * 4.3” * 8.6”
- Package dimension : 4.7” * 4.7” * 2.4”
A low-cost product, Lumir K, is operated by the same technology as Lumir C. It can save up to 80% of fuels than a kerosene lamp because it uses a little heat source. By reducing the incomplete combustion, it can reduce up to 88% of black carbon than a kerosene lamp.
Through Lumir K, they can light up the darkness more healthily with low-cost.
Lumir K was made to solve the insufficient light problem. So we only sell to non-profit organization or groups without any profit. Please contact us by e-mail below who want more specific information. Let's light up the world together by adding worth to our warm technology.

We've been researching and developing Lumir K which will be launched in second half year. We'll make more proper product to the locals through Lumir C that will be in mass production soon by your support. And this is some of the video that we filmed while researching.
Lumir C is shaped after a lighthouse that lights up a dark sea. Delicate mood of a candle and modern sense of LED are in wonderful harmony.
This prototype is printed out with 3D printer, so please look at the structure and the design only, without considering the colors.
ㅇ Keeps the candle to be placed in the center.
ㅇ Helps the candle wax not to be spolledd.
ㅇ Makes users more safe to use.
Lumir C Mood creates soft atmosphere around you and makes you feel cozy.
Lumir C Spot helps you read books or magazines in comfortable atmosphere.
* Since this product gets the power from the heat energy, the brightness can be differ from the picture above depending on the size of the flame.
International backers will be responsible for applicable tariffs and customs fees.
Risks and challenges
We completed testing and molding in high standard through 27 working prototypes. Also we have KC, FCC, CE and RoHS certificates on Lumir C, so there will be nothing to make our delivery process delayed. We'll get you this surprising product in your hand with best quality.
We have established relationships with experienced material supplier, forwarder and manufacturer. So we are confident to ship by the projected dates. But one thing that might delay the date will because of the color. But we will do our best to keep the date. We will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.
Inside the product, there are semi-conductors that make electricities by the difference of temperatures in the product. By our own radiating structure, we made it possible to supply electricities consistently with small flame.
No. If you put Lumir C on the lit candle, LED will become bright gradually and if you blow out on the top of Lumir C, it will be start to turn off. That's it!
You don't need to worry about the danger of explosion, since there is no battery in our product. We have also lowered the danger of fires by using heat resistant materials.
It can be possible, since it is operated by heating energy. However, Lumir C is designed to be used by a tealight-sized candle so we prefer you to use only a tealight.
It lasts until the tealight last. Generally one tealight last for 4 hours.
Thermoelectric module's life is commonly expected 10 years and LED's life is about 50,000 hours.
Thank you for your interest in our first product, Lumir C. Please send us a brief information about your company to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll contact you as soon as possible.
Of course, solar lamp is a really good product for the undeveloped countries to light up the darkness. But when the weather was little cloudy, some of solar lamp wasn't able to be recharged. Also, the more important problem was that there was no one to replace the rechargeable Li-ion batteries which has 1-2 years of life span. So we tried to make more light with a candle that they could easily get and already used commonly.
