Energy Saving Chair

This unique chair produces its own light! The Murakami chair's attached lamp is powered by kinetic energy produced from the chair rocking back and forth—deliciously simple and elegant.  The lampshade is not really a lampshade. That's the actual OLED light source, shaped like a lampshade.

The OLED lamp even senses when it's light or dark out, and if it is light, the energy produced by rocking is stored in a battery pack until nightfall. The chair, designed by Rochus Jacob, shared first prize at the DesignBoom Green Life Competition, which was held in September in Korea.
