Don’t let a lack of outlets spoil your perfectly planned lighting intentions. Here’s one lamp from designer Manon Leblanc that harnesses the power of water to provide for lovely interior lighting – completely cord free! Dubbed the WAT, with just a little H2O and a hydroelectric battery (composed of a carbon stick coated with magnesium), the pair combine to create a stellar electro chemical reaction able to create enough power to light up a series of warm light LED strips. A simple and modern design, this is WAT green lighting is all about!

    This is a fun idea! We know using water to get power isn’t new but this is still clever. funiture santa rosa

    this doesn’t seem very special to me, if it had a little water turbine that used gravity to generate power then it would be cool, but this is just like me pouring the water/suphuric acid out of my car battery and then saying just add water to this battery and it will be able to power a light bulb.

    This is only good if you exclusively use gray water. Water is just as precious a resource as oil/electricity, if not even more so! So don’t waste it just because there isn’t an outlet nearby :/
