Firewinder is a wind powered light that's both environmentally friendly and beautiful. Wind from any direction spins a small turbine that lights up LED's along it's edge. The device “breathes” with the changing winds, increasing it's intensity from a dim glow to a brilliant light as speeds increase. The shape of the Firewinder was inspired by naturally occurring spirals and can be easily disassembled for recycling.

Inventor Tom Lawton and a team including a professor of Aerodynamics from Bristol University, a specialist electronic system design consultant and a leading consultant in environmental management & sustainable product design spent six years researching and designing this remarkable light.
