When you stop for a moment and think about it for a second, technology is amazing. Take lamps for example, all you need is to hit a button and you get some light. It’s almost too simple and maybe the reason why we spend so much electricity unnecessarily.

This could have been the thought process behind the creation of DINA, a lamp that requires that you insert a coin before you can use it. Although you can get your money back easily, the fact that you need to pay when using the light is a recurring reminder that cool technology comes with an energy price.

This cool modern desk lamp was designed by MOAK, a design studio from Cali in Colombia who specializes in lighting and furniture.
