App-controlled light indicates the time of day in any location around the world.

Created by designer Jon Liow,  Solar is an interactive light that can mimic any region’s sun cycle. It will glow brighter at dawn and soften as the sun sets in that location. His wacky creation allows users to experience a place they may have never been or seen, and visualize different light cycles of the world.

Solar is programmed so that users can control it with their smartphone wherever they are. The smartphone app can automatically sync with the light of a location to establish a 24-hour cycle or manually adjusted to fit the user’s needs.

Secondary functions of the lamp allow users to disengage light cycles and adjust the level of brightness of the light. The manual controls of the Solar app were mea to put users in control of the time of day.

Eliminating the need of world clocks, Solar makes for the perfect utility to cross multiple timezones without leaving your living room.
