  • Description

    For a long time, lamps have been an electrical experience - the light being evidence of electrical current passed through a filament. But now modern lighting has become unrecognisable, no longer the subject of electricity, but of electronics. Printed circuit boards, micro-chips, diodes and interfaces are now the staple ingredients, giving us greater control, conserving energy and providing longer lifespans. This transformation is a chance to establish new possibilities for the meeting point between light and electronics.

    This is not a story about gadgetry (regardless technical achievements), but rather an affirmation about how we live – that wherever light is supplied, power is often also required to charge our burgeoning electronic devices. w152 Busby is an electronic lamp that provides intelligent universal power from three USB outlets, detecting charging requirements and managing them at their fastest rate, however many variable devices are plugged in. It provides up to 3 Amps of power - enough to charge the latest generation of laptop computers. It can be supplied either as a freestanding or wall-mountable lamp, or built-in to a surface. The w152 illuminates and powers the office, the workshop, the library, the living room and the bedside table.
