Design by Jonas Damon.
The most utilitarian of tools gets a much needed makeover in Jonas Damon's Torch series for Areaware. Unconventionally simple and eco-friendly, the home flashlight will never be stored under the sink again. Damon's intention was to take the industrial edge off this every day product and to give it new life. New growth Beech wood transforms the typical in to the beautiful. The end cap, which unscrews for easy battery replacement, houses the convenient on/off switch. And, hooray! Torch features a energy efficient LED bulb. Output is 60 Lumens. Offered in Small or Medium sizes.
The Small Torch is intended for display, but maintains all the integrity of a useful, utilitarian object. Flashlight made from sustainably harvested Beech wood. A Jonas Damon design.
Requires 2 AAA batteries (batteries not included)
Material(s): Sustainably harvested new growth beech wood, aluminum, rubber
Dimensions: 6"L x 1.5"Dia
Designer: Jonas Damon
