Designer Wesley York has come up with a simple emergency lighting system that is designed to appear as just a regular electrical outlet cover. Due to the subtle look that other emergency lighting systems lack, the Illumine concept is great for homeowners who are worried about the type of aesthetics that bulky emergency lighting systems provide.
In addition, traditional overhead emergency lighting systems are rendered useless by upward traveling smoke from a fire. The Illumine concept lights up the floor guiding people to safety in emergency situations such as fires. The lighting device charges itself using a rechargeable lithium ion battery while not in use and powering itself in the case of an electrical outage.
