We’ve covered Ikea ‘s solar powered lamps  in the past, however the Swedish purveyor of affordable design just launched a brand new line of Solvinden  lights that are powered by the wind as well as the sun! Designed by David Wahl , these brilliant outdoors products will provide a source of free LED light for years as they harvest energy from the sun and the prevailing winds.
Ikea ‘s Solvinden line features freestanding and hanging lamps with white or colored recyclable polypropylene  shades that creates playful light effects when they rotate with the wind. They have no cables, last around 2,000 hours, and when fully charged they give off light for about 12 hours. Ikea’s new sun and wind-powered lamps sell at an affordable price point, are made from recycled materials, and use zero electric energy.
