The Martyr lamp – an energy saver project
Do you have a bedside lamp that is lit all night long? Well, if you do you might consider paying a visit to the guys from The Play Coalition who thought about an interesting way of making people remember that they must save energy. They designed a unique and interesting little lamp they called “Martyr”.
This Martyr lamp looks like a little man who is trying to take the cable out of the wall plug and leave you in the dark. This way you will save a lot of energy because these bed side lamps are on all night long and they consume a lot of power for lighting a house with all the inhabitants sleeping in it.
The design of this funny lamp is nice and funny, but also very simple. The light bulb with a round head looks perfectly like the head of a little man and the legs and arms are easily made of plastic, being actually a support for the lamp. The lamp that you can see in the pictures was only a prototype after the initial design, but I guess you could easily turn it into mass production since the message is clear and loud: do not waste energy, especially when you do not need light as you sleep.
