Hi Kickstarter community, we are Andrea and Adnan, product designers, craftsman and passionate minimalists and we created LOMPLI - the first compressible lampshade for your mobile phone light.
"a compressible and portable lampshade for your mobile"
LOMPLI was designed to diffuse the strong light on the backside of your mobile phone to give you back the controll of the light and to have a small pice of interior lightning in your pocket.
Two years ago we had the idea and we felt that many other people have the same problem as we have. So we startet from scratch to design the form, find the right materials and make everything work together like we had it in mind.
compressible and stable
Folded up it shrinks up to 10 times in its unfolded state. When unfolded it keeps its position and will not snap back untill you force it to.
easy to assemble
The magnet will not harm your phone in any case. It´s just as strong as it shoud be to hold LOMPLI in position.
Hundreds of holes in the surface make the light shine through and gives you the effect of many stars on the ceiling. Our goal was not just to make a light but to create a feeling and atmosphere in any situation.
Clap to turn the light on
Clap to turn your light on, clap again to turn it off!
There are many free well functioning apps on the market you can download to control your mobile phone lamp with clapping your hands. The microphone reacts on the loud sound of the clap and turns on and off while making a noise. We will make a list with good apps that are for free for your different mobile phones.
Turn to dim
With a slightly turn in one direction you can infinitely dim your phone light. The magnet point will be an anchor so you can grab lompli by its head and slightly turn left and right to phisically regulate the intensity of your light.
High quality materials to withstand far more than 1000 times open and close!
We startet with pape for our lampshade and soon realized that paper is not strong enough to withstand the high demands. So we continued our reserces and found a very robust, water repellent and translucent material in Japan that people use to cover room devider with. We took some samples from Japan home and was very satisfied with the properties of this material. Finally we combined it with hard austrian wood to give lompli the quality it needs and the interior look that we were searching for.
The lampshade itselve is plugged together and not glued so it can be compressed and decompressed for more than thousend times. Through plugging it and not gluing we avoid tensions in the material. The Lampshade is glued to the top and bottom with a high restistent, transparent industrial glue.
Our packaging is 100% recycled wastepaper
It took as more than half a year to find the right material and form for our LOMPLI packaging. It was important for us to keep it save and also to leave a CO2 footprint as small as possible. We decided to use 100% wastpaper that is made mostly out of old newspapers. We do not use any kind of toxic glue or plastic for the packaging and its not colored with chemical pigments.
We will assemble every LOMPLI and fill your package with the components you will need to use it.
We contacted many shipping companies in Austria and finally made it to arrange good conditions for international shipping. Due to the fact that we can pack everything in a small package the shipping prices are reasonable.
shipping price: Austria: 4 EUR, European Union: 6 EUR (6,69 USD), Worldwide 8 EUR (8,93 USD)
You will receive LOMPLI fully assembled with the packaging flattened. If you want to give LOMPLI to someone, you can easily unfold the package, place LOMPLI into its position. Our packaging works without any glue. Within a minute everyting is done. We will ad an illustrated description how the packaging is folded to the package you receive.
We use 100% recycled wastpaper for our packaging and our shipping packages. Even our duct tape we use to close the package is out of 100% recycled paper.
Meet Adnan and Andrea the founder of LOMPLI!
We are a young austrian couple finding new solutions for new products in our everyday life. Our workshop is a colaboration with artists, designer and musicians. Andreas passion is marketing and sales, including online business and distribution. Adnan is fond of product design and technologie. Together we are a good team that has successfully managed to realize products that are making people happy all over the world.
One of our products is a multitool called WERKKARTE that we designed in 2009 long before the multitool hype in Austria started.
During the years we had successfull cooperations with many companies and many people. We managed to build up a network of manufacturers and people who will help us producing and shipping LOMPLI. The risk of not beeing able to deliver on time is low. Nevertheless we will try everything we can to make our project as successfull as possible.

Risks and challenges
During our previous projects we built up a good network of manufacturers, materieal suppliers and helping hands. Without this network it would be really difficult for us to realize a project like LOMPLI. We started some time ago to cooperate with these people and to prepare everything we need to get a good start.
We talked to our partners that we are going to make a Kickstarter campaign starting in september and that they should prepare in case that the campaign is going well.
Our academic and practice background of product design, engineering, marketing and sales during the last 10 years enables us to carry out the project well.
We are really passionate about what we have created and we will do our best to conscientiously meet the demands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
