Desk lamps tend to be mainly functional objects but every once in a while a design comes along that is functional and beautiful. The Frama T-Lamp is just that. Built by Frama, a multi-disciplinary design brand that creates lifestyle objects that inspire the senses and encourage mindful living, based out of Copenhagen.
The T-Lamp has a simple mechanism that allows the top of the lamp to be tilted allowing for the user to direct light at different angles, making it versatile in different environments, not just the home office.
Crafted from brushed steel or brass, it is available in three finishes – raw brushed steel, powder coated brushed steel in white or brushed brass. It has an integrated dimmer allowing the user to dim down the LED to set the mood or brighten it up when you need to flood something with light.
Being visible whilst riding a bike is vital, allowing other road users to see that you are on the road. But as with most gadgets nowadays, you need to be ready to check they are fully charged ahead of each ride and to turn them off when you stop.
The Xlite 100 is a smart bike light that turns on when you start moving thanks to gyroscopes and light sensors working to accurately adjust the light to your every move. It will switch on under motion, flicker while you ride and dynamically brighten when you brake, decelerate and will turn off after 60 seconds if the bike is stationary.
With its large internal 400 mAh Li-ion battery, the Xlite 100 will last over 20+ hours on a single charge and has an IPX5 water resistance rating, so no need to worry if you are out when the heavens open. It can be mounted on the saddle or on the seatpost depending on preference.
