Induction Wall Lamp

$398
The Induction Wall Light uses a magnetic field to power a 6-foot fluorescent bulb. Stomping on the custom foot switch activates a circuit inside the base, sending electrical current through the wire to the bulb resting in the wall- mounted lamp holder. Comes as a single unit.


The Induction Wall Light offers an opportunity to find interesting new uses for existing materials without letting them go to waste. Rather than destroying a fluorescent bulb, which would release gases that might be environmentally harmful (i.e. Argon and Mercury gases are commonly used in fluorescent bulbs), the Induction Wall Light can power any intact fluorescent bulb. It demonstrates that there is still life left in old bulbs even though they seem exhausted. A fluorescent bulb is normally lit with a wired connection at each of its pins, sending power through the filaments at either end and causing collisions between electrons inside the tube, which then give off light as they pass through the bulb’s phosphorous coating. When a bulb is burnt-out, it will be blackened on its ends, indicating that the fuses are blown and that it will no longer work in a standard fluorescent lighting setup. Despite the fact that the bulb seems useless as-is, it can still be lit through electromagnetic induction.
