Sollys: A Modern Solar Lamp by Alexander Main

A product designer, Alexander Main has released a design for what he describes “as a new innovative approach of solar technology integration in home devices”. Solar power has long been referred to as the future source of sustainable energy. Nonetheless, its slow, mass adoption has been caused not only due to its higher cost – compared to oil prices – but also due to its poor aesthetics.

When it comes to home consumer devices (e.g. solar lamps) many designs have unsuccessfully entered the market. They have all failed to integrate solar technology in a “nonintrusive” manner meaning they place obvious, unattractive and industrial looking solar panels on the top, ultimately turning away most people. As a contrast, the Sollys lamp takes a different approach.

Alexander explains: “I wanted to meld the solar cell with the lamp’s design in such a way that it becomes invisible.”

To achieve this look, a single, fully round/black solar cell was used. The form of the lamp followed the function of the solar cell, creating a unified structure. Additionally, Sollys features remarkable added functionalities including:

  • a 10 watt Bluetooth speaker
  • a dimmable 256-color LED light
  • a hidden wireless charging pad for smartphones
  • a light/sound alarm function
  • a leather strap for easy carrying
  • a removable 4×3.7 volt battery pack

For now, Sollys remains a vision for a future product. Yet, as the need of moving towards sustainable energy grows, there is an increasing demand to build solar-powered products, which are not only attractive, but superior.
