Entry Description

FARO

"Lighthouse" or by its Spanish name "FARO", is a tall tower located on coasts and ports that emits a powerful light to guide navigators at night.
" FARO" is a luminaire for different activities, its design comes from the concept of lighthouse. For this reason, the essential parts of this structure (base, tower, dome and lantern) were taken as an analogy, which gave rise to the creation of the "FARO" lamp.
The function of "FARO" is to provide the user with new possibilities of interacting with a lamp inside and outside the home, as it consists of three types of adjustable luminaire, which are the base and the central part with warm and neutral temperatures, highlighted by its ecological 3D resin shade and the upper part that provides a cold light, all of them being used by the user and his various activities, "FARO" can be transported anywhere since its two sections are composed of electronic systems and independent rechargeable batteries, being interlaced by a sphere which has a charging mechanism that connects to the central part by magnetism and can be separated at any time, this sphere can be selected the color that most suits the user which is combined with its power cord.
"FARO" is an innovative product that allows the user to have a greater interaction, being able to be used, manipulated and transported to any place and need you want.
Sustainability Approach

The focus of sustainability of "FARO" is very clear, which is to be able to make the most of the lamp and this is possible because it is a lamp that serves for different activities where they are normally performed with individual luminaires that are commercialized in the market giving the advantage to "FARO" that perfectly covers activities such as rest, relaxation and study or work, these require those specific luminaires but with "FARO" you have it all helping the carbon footprint.
"FARO" materials are recyclable as are electronic materials, rechargeable batteries and silver. In addition, their main screens are recyclable as they are made of biodegradable 3D resin.
