The Lighting Tea Bag


Daphne Mir (@lekogirl) from Twitter sent me information on a product that uses a phosphorescent compound in a tea bag to create an interesting, impromptu-esque light source – The Tea Bag Light!

Designer Wonsik Chae has created this source, “consisting of a cup filled with a chemical intermediate and a bag containing fluorescent molecules, the light works through a catalyst of this chemical reaction.”  Definitely a niche source, certainly boutique – but what do you think?  Post in the comments!
