Niels Datema

In order to explore the different applications of graphite, Niels Datema has designed various products, each of which has a certain property of graphite. Datema discovered that graphite has huge potential in terms of sustainability. It is an excellent electrical conductor and has a very low resistance. Graphite is the only naturally dry lubricant that we know of. Furthermore, the material is exceptionally resistant to extreme temperatures and to corrosion.

The GraphLight consists of a positive and a negative pole. When these two parts make contact, the LED light turns on. The lubricating effect of graphite is used to focus the lamp on a fixed point without any effort.
