    Tate's EcoCore Phase Change Technology for Energy Efficiency

    The EcoCore Phase Change Panel incorporates micro-encapsulated phase change materials to reduce indoor air temperature fluctuations and save energy. During the peak solar load of the day, the phase-change material embedded within the welded steel panel is designed to melt and absorb energy -- energy that would otherwise be reflected back into the room as heat or transferred to the air stream. This stored energy can be held within the panel until cooler temperatures allows the material to resolidify and release the absorbed heat. Storing energy in this way produces a more stable and comfortable environment, while decreasing demands on HVAC systems.

    Northern Lighting Half Lamp

    The Illusion Half lamp combines the functional elements of light and a table. It hovers above the ground, challenging our perceptions of gravity and our idea of two common pieces of furniture, offering the elements of surprise and magic. Combined in one, the lamp and table become the focal point of any space, whilst providing a place for your cocktail or your keys. Illusion Half lamp was inspired by the natural wonders of the Scandinavian natural landscape. In particular Kjæragbolten, a large rock hovering in the crevice of a mountain above Lysefjorden in Rogaland, Norway.

Installation is similar to mounting for natural stone panels in terms of processing, strength, and tolerances.
