Imagine, as a manufacturer, that your potential market is two billion consumers worldwide. This almost inconceivable figure is the ultimate scale of d.light’s ambition, a consumer-products company set up by a pair of social entrepreneurs in 2007 to design and product lighting solutions for the one in four people on this planet who live without electricity. With two million lives already positively affected by d.light’s innovative solar-powered lamps and counting, the company’s story is only just beginning. Architonic spoke to co-founder and CEO Sam Goldman about this life-changing project.


'Twist' lamp by Alain Berteau for Belgian lighting brand Aluci

Belgian architect/designer Alain Berteau is a hard taskmaster. ‘When you switch it off, you’re not looking at a dead machine,’ Berteau said of his new ‘Twist’ LED lamp for Belgian lighting manufacturer Aluci, while in conversation with Architonic at the recent Interieur 2010 design biennale in Kortrijk. The piece’s highly reduced, architectural form ensures that it continues to work as an intriguing space-defining presence beyond its utilitarian function as a light source.

The New York based architectural practice ESI Design realised the Shanghai Corporate Pavilion (SCP) which is characterised by its illuminated façade – an unique 3D display surface comprised of a 65 km long grid made from plastic tubes, each spaced half a meter apart with LEDs every ten inches. Heart of the pavilion is the Dream Cube Control Room, an immersive, interactive 360-degree theatre experience where the visitors’ collective movements trigger changes to millions of LED lights on the Dream Cube’s façade.

'Radarrr' by Ingo Maurer

This highly factual floorlamp by Ingo Maurer was presented at this year’s light+building for the first time. ‘Radarrr’ is composed of a faceted aluminium screen which reflects and disperses the light and a tripod base. The patent ball-joint makes it possible to turn and tilt the screen. A functional detail is the acanthoid cooling element on the backside of the strong and heat-emitting LED.
