Design and Development

Initial Design 

SolarBeam is the culmination of a series of designs and prototypes! Each one taking our project one step closer to reality. We began with the initial designs of SolarBeam in the summer of 2023. At the time we wanted to offer an alternative to traditional grow lights by making something by hand that people would want to have in their homes to display their favorite plants, or grow their own food at home.

The idea was to develop something timeless, simple-to-use, and elegant so that more people could enjoy the benefits of growing plants in their own home without having to worry about how much sunlight their plants were getting. From the start it was very important to us to have something that was well made, beautifully designed, and a light produced a high quality of ambient warm light that people would enjoy having on display at home.

Prototype 0

Our first prototype provided us an idea of what SolarBeam could become. Embossed with a gold 0 on the top right corner, this prototype was our first step in testing and refining the SolarBeam system.

With this prototype we were able to experiment with elements such as the finish, materials and dimensions of the system. Creating this first prototype was crucial as it allowed us an opportunity to iterate on our initial design and test the overall build quality of the system.

This also allowed us to go through and test a number of LED solutions. Finally we landed on a high quality system of reliable and replaceable LED grow panels, accessible through the removable back plate.

Prototype 1 

After updating our design and finally installing the system we began testing to see how well our system worked for growing plants. We are happy to report that our plants thrived in an otherwise dimly lit environment and it was invigorating to see our product finally up on the shelf.

This was the first time we invited family and some of our plant loving friends to come and see the device and try it out for themselves. This first beta test was very important for us when it came to refining SolarBeam. From this test we were to make adjustments to our final design to improve things such as flush mounting, quality of light and the overall design and laser engraving.

Final Design 

With our final design for SolarBeam we are confident that we have developed a system that you will love to have in your home. From it’s easy-to-use design, to our traditional handcrafted construction, and high quality materials we hope that you will fall in love with this device.

Through our iterations and designs we have honed in on the product that we initially set out to create. SolarBeam is now streamlined for production, testedand ready to be built in small batches to maintain a high level of quality. We believe that SolarBeam stands-out amongst traditional grow lights and provides people with a beautiful alternative that they would be proud to display in their home.
