Radast Design, LLC, creator of cutting edge lighting applications, is excited to announce the LightDrive table lamp.
The engineers at Radast Design were convinced there was a better way to use LED lighting for the home. Their groundbreaking product is the LightDrive table lamp.
With LightDrive, a high output LED module is housed in the base of the lamp. Using a specially designed optical waveguide, which works the same way as fiber optics, light is transferred to the top of the lamp where it softly scattered into the room. The heat of the LEDs is safely and effectively dissipated within the base of the lamp.
Steven Peltier, Radast Design co-founder explains, we literally turned the design of the lamp on its head. By placing the light source in the base, we not only solved how to safely control heat, we also opened up a whole new world of possibilities in lighting design.
The lamp features a luxurious design that delivers bright light in a pleasing warm-white color. The LightDrive table lamp uses only 13 Watts, is completely maintenance free, employs earth friendly materials, and has no exposed hot surfaces. Since the LightDrive LEDs are run at an optimum temperature, they are expected to last their rated lifetime of well beyond 15 years.
The product is a result of two years of prototyping and has been engineered with close attention to detail. Precision-machined aircraft grade aluminum is balanced by optical grade glass and sculpted wood bases finished in durable, multi-layered automotive paint and clear coat. The clean and contemporary design uses bold colors and nickel-plating to complement todays most fashionable interiors.
The lamp is available on Kickstarter in Arctic Pearl white and Ebony Pearl black finishes for an introductory pledge of $ 450 with further options available, including the ability to customize the lamp with the backers choice of color and shade.

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
Lumens.com has introduced the new CSYS LED Task Lamp by Jake Dyson, a revolutionary design built to last more than 37 years.
Available exclusively at Lumens.com, the CSYS LED Task Lamp is the latest contemporary lighting introduction from Jake Dyson, the result of six years of researching the mechanics and technology needed to innovate task lighting. The sleekly designed CSYS has a number of features that go beyond the conventions of the everyday desk lamp:
Built-in cooling mechanism: The advanced technology behind the CSYS is instrumental in keeping the lamp running for more than 37 years. Inside, the lamp features heat pipe technology, which conducts heat away from the LED lights and distributes it evenly over the length of the heat sink. Without requiring external pumps or extra energy to cool the LEDs, the CSYS is able to run brightly and efficiently for an extraordinary long timemore than 160,000 hours.
Dimmable LED lamping: Despite ever-accelerating technology that makes it challenging to keep up, the CSYS Task Lamp was designed around the latest generation of high-power, warm white LED lights and is fully dimmable. The spread and intensity of light can be controlled within the working area based on the lamps positioning. The technology also prevents early life failure of the LEDs and ensures a stable performance.
Innovative positioning: Inspired by a construction crane and drawing board, the CSYS can be adjusted effortlessly in three axes, similar to how a cable car moves along a cable. The mechanics are designed with precision to ensure smooth, exact positioning that doesnt sag or droop after it is let go.
The name CSYS refers to the system of coordinates that defines an objects position in the X, Y and Z axis. The lamp was also featured at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair during New York Design Week this month to much acclaim for its superior functionality and sustainability.
The son of high-profile inventor James Dyson (already a household name in vacuums and fans), Jake Dyson studied Industrial Design at Central St Martins College of Art and Design and began his career designing retail interiors in shops, cafes and clubs. He later bought a mill and lathe to start experimenting and developing products, with a hands-on approach all the way through conception to a products manufacture. His studio and workshop are based in Clerkenwell in London.

Breakthrough design permits Energy-Star Compliant 50W equivalent performance in standard ANSI form factor.
LEDnovation, a preeminent developer of LED lighting and replacement lamp technology, today expanded its EnhanceLite
A compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), more commonly referred to as an energy saving light bulb (ESB) is a type of fluorescent lamp. The energy saving light bulb has been created to substitute for the standard incandescent lamp that many people still use. They fit into exactly the same standard light fixtures as incandescent light bulbs so you needn’t have to spend on new fittings to accommodate them.
Energy saving bulbs emit the same amount of visible light but use less power to do so, plus they have a longer rated life. While the purchase price is typically a more than that of an equivalent incandescent lamp, the extended lifetime and lower energy use will more than compensate for the higher initial cost. For example making the change in your home can save approximately twenty pounds in electricity costs over the course of a year. The average rated life of a these bulbs is up to 15 times more than that of an incandescent bulbs with a rated lifespan of between 6,000 and 15,000 hours, whereas incandescent lamps are usually expected to have a lifespan of 750 hours or 1,000 hours.
For a given light output, energy saving bulbs use 20-33 percent of the power of equivalent incandescent lamps. Around 10% of UK household carbon emissions come from light bulbs so the environmental benefit of these bulbs could be enormously significant.
Energy saving bulbs are produced for both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) input. DC energy saving bulbs are often used in recreational vehicles as well as in households. Interestingly, they can also be operated using solar powered street lights, using solar panels located on the top or sides of a pole and luminaries that are specially wired to use the lamps. This makes them an even more eco-friendly feature.
Although incandescent bulbs reach full brightness a fraction of a second after being switched on energy saving bulbs manufactured after 2009 also turn on within a second, but they do still take time to warm up to full brightness. Some energy saving bulbs are marketed as “instant on” and have no noticeable warm-up time scale, but others can take up to 60 seconds to reach full brightness or longer in very low temperatures.
It is important that we all play a part in trying to reduce our own carbon emissions. Every little bit we do, even if it’s as simple as changing a light bulb contributes towards slowing down global warming and protecting our future.
Energy Saving Light Bulbs should be in all homes. We use the lights in whole day many times. But these lights consume lot of energy. Almost all the incandescence lights consume more energy than the fluorescent lamps. As the energy required to heat the filament in the incandescence lights is more where as in the case of fluorescent lamps there is no need to heat filament and therefore the energy required for such lamps is less.
There are different types of these power or energy saving lamps, which are as follows
Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFLs) Bulb
These are 11 watt A19 compact fluorescent bulbs. These are energy saving bulbs as they save energy around 40 watts than that of the incandescent lamps. Along with this, supra compact fluorescent lamps will lasts around 10 times more than that of the incandescent lights by saving around 75% of the energy. These CFLs will give warm color tone and has around 10,000 long life lamp hours than that of the incandescent lights.
These supra life CFL will produce minimum heat, light intensity and provides the best color rendition. Along with these features these are low profile size so as to fit variety of fixtures. This will offer around 36,000 hours of life span by saving tremendous amount of the energy without the maintenance.
Blue Patriotic Light
These are the lights which will require no more replacements of the bulbs so one can replace there old bulbs with these bulbs so as to save the energy required. These are well for the home decoration purpose. This bulb is compassed with the three LEDs inside it therefore consumes less energy. These bulbs need around 8 watts of power and life hours is of 100,000 hours. The main feature of this bulb is that they are water, chip and chip resistant.
These are 38 watts PAR 38 halogen floodlight which saves energy up to 5660 hours energy. These lamps use the rigid quartz capsule which is more durable this will conform precise beam control to the help of solid state design. These lamps will save the energy up to 13% than any general halogen lights. The lamp is advantageous as it is provided with the coating this reflecting coating will pass heat outside the bulb through back and allows the light forward. These lights will survive for any commercial use where as it will survive for around the 5 years in the house hold.
These are the types of the energy saving light bulbs and due to the different technologies used they actually helpful in saving the energy.

* What are the different types of lighting?
The different types of lights are incandescent, tungsten-halogen, compact fluorescent lamps, tubular fluorescent fixtures, and HID (high-density discharge).
•Incandescent lights have a relatively short life. They can only withstand between 1000 and 3000 hours of continuous use. They are also the least efficient source of regular lights.
•Tungsten-halogen are lights that belong to cateogyr of incandescent lamps. They have become gradually popular in recent years. They generate a white light with more intense standards.
•Dense florescent lights are a kind of fluorescent light but generate color more similar to some incandescent lamps. They combine the standard features of other lights.
•Tubular fluorescent lights are in tubular shape. They have a smaller diameter but are more efficient compared to other lights. They have a magnetic ballast that the lightning features depend upon.
•HID is a type of light that has a high output of light. Its components are mercury, metal halide, vapor and high pressure of sodium lighting.
* What are the different kinds of fixtures?
An extensive diversity of fixtures is available for different purposes. In general, fixtures are practical, versatile, presentable, and durable to make the interior design colorful.
The three main groups of fixtures are end piece fixtures, ceiling lights fixtures, and landscape fixtures.
•End piece fixtures have a design to work with solid standard cable wire.
•Ceiling light fixtures are handled with modified cable with larger diameter and capacitors.
•Landscape fixtures are used for giving colors and additional attraction for the background of landscape.
* What is a fluorescent light?
A fluorescent light produces energy from the atom. It is composed of many small particle pockets that expand to cause momentum. The basic unit of lights in flourescent is “light photons.”
Atoms discharge light photons when the electrons heat up. The electrons travel around certain orbit to increase the net charge and produce energy levels. After that light is produced from the nucleus.
* What is incandescent light?
Incandescent lights produce light by a shimmering filament. The filament is heated by white-hot electric current. Incandescence is the light-giving method. A glass container or lamp encloses the bulb.
It normally has a vacuum with a low-pressure to produce oxidation of filament with a high temperature.
* What is halogen?
Halogen can provide brilliant illumination by the use of electric current to heat the filament of metal and tungsten until it burns. Halogen has a filament inside a container or envelope.
A halogen lamp works much the same way as an incandescent lamp. On the other hand, the chemical reactions between halogen lamps are proficient and brighter than incandescent lamps.

Lighting is one of the hardest choices in any decorating project. Wall Sconces, chandeliers, floor lamps, candle lamps or electric light fixtures? After you have decided for a nice chandelier, some sconces and few accent lights, now comes the question what kind? You are looking for uniqueness, a beautiful design, size, hopefully with a nice story behind your pick. That is exactly what more and more find in Moroccan themed interior design, the fastest growing interior design concept in the US.
Moroccan lighting is one of the most unique concepts for many reasons. Moroccan Decor is generally very hard to find in the US and also very unique because of the different historic, cultural and art influences in Morocco. Moroccan lighting with its vivid colors, elaborated geometric forms, exotic designs, and unique raw materials is the most recognized symbol of Moroccan decor.
Henna lamps, made with stretched goat skin and hand decorated with traditional henna designs, and at times dyed with saffron or paprika based dyes, are one great way to add an earthy and rustic touch to any space. Henna wall sconces can also be used without lighting just as decorative wall pieces. Often said that Morocco is the country of recycling where nothing goes to waist, the goat skin is recycled into these beautiful lampshades and passed on to henna artists to put in the final decorative touches. Most if not all the henna artist are women that earn extra cash and for who it is the only way to achieve financial independence.
A Stained glass lamp with carved motives can be a bolder more extravagant way to spice up your space. With Moroccan lamps, also referred as Moroccan lanterns (useful search words if you are researching them on the net) you can introduce a little eclectic flair in virtually any existing concept you may already have.
If you already have wrought iron or rustic furniture, then get one of those cool hand hammered chandeliers. A Chandelier is the perfect option that would delightfully enhance that sense of magic and warmth that only Moroccan chandeliers can accomplish.
Using few pieces of Moroccan lighting and some accent pieces will recreate a true exotic Moroccan oasis.
Tips on using Moroccan lighting:
Consider “playing” with different wattage that can help you realize a different look, experiment with using a candle instead of a light bulb, when possible a candle works best in small spaces. When using henna lamps or wall sconces, use very low wattage 20-25 watts is recommended. Colored light bulbs are a great way to add a color emphasis to your project.
Maintain your Moroccan lighting:
Maintenance of your Moroccan lighting is minimal and doing so will ensure that your items last for a long time. Most of the light fixtures that have opening side doors only require the hinge to be lubricated once a while. Henna lamps and wall sconces need absolutely no maintenance, however expect the henna to fall off as it is designed to do so. The actual henna on the skin of the sconces will fall off and leave the reddish design tattooed on the surface, so it is useless to fight it and you will be surprise to see that it your piece will embellish even more. When using Moroccan lanterns outside consider spraying them with a clear sealant to keep the lamps from rusting. There are two ways of coating your lamps. You can meticulously go over the metal parts only or you can just spray the sealer throughout the fixture including the glass. If you choose to go over the whole lamp you will finish it in a way that the lamp will appear aged. Beware that at all times you need to keep the hinges protected so you are still able to open and close the door.
Light bulb or candle?
Esthetically speaking using a candle will always bring the most out of your lighting fixture, working best in small space where less light is needed or dim lighting is desired. Using a light bulb will bring more light in larger spaces. If your lantern has a flat base, you can just sit a candle using the same fire safety precautions you would otherwise. If you decide to go with an electrical bulb remember that most if not all Moroccan lighting importers do not include the wiring kit which you can acquire easily at your local hardware store for a minimal cost. Once you have the wiring kit all you have to do is insert the kit through the opening door and get the plug out of the top opening of the lamp and voila you are ready to showcase the new lamp.
