Mix Interiors – June 2017

John answered the Big Question in the June edition of Mix Interiors.

Q: Which product designers have recently impressed you and why?

A: I’m really taken with an idea from Francisco Gomez Paz for Astep, called Candela. We are all used to LED lighting now becoming the norm with its ability to provide enough power to give brilliant colour rendition. With designers falling over themselves to invent different ways of using the chips, Francisco has taken LED lighting to a different level by not having electricity to power it, but using Bioethanol to power an LED in a beautiful looking lantern. The bioethanol lasts 6 hours and given enough energy to also charge a mobile phone.
