The radiometer was invented in the 1870s by the British physicist William Crooks, who called it a 'light mill'. Originally, radiometers served as a laboratory instrument, examining the conversion of light energy into kinetic energy. But hey, they look great too! With the Hightide Radiometer you can bring this simple and clever invention into your home as a decorative piece. 

The wings of the radiometer are activated by electromagnetic radiation, e.g. light. The rotation speed of the radiometer changes depending on the light intensity and light source. When placed near windows or incandescent lamps where light enters, you can enjoy the movement...

About Penco

Penco is a Japanese stationery brand founded on a single ballpoint pen. As the Americana inspired name suggests it is a company making pens. That is, it started with a single ballpoint pen. But they have ventured into much more than just pens. By now their nostalgic analog inspired collections encompass all kinds of stationery. Ranging from clips to clipboards, notebooks to console boxes and pencases to, well… pens.

Penco is part of the Hightide brand family. Hightide brands are known for their attention to detail, materials and great design. This can be seen throughout the entire Hightide range of casual everyday stationery.  

We’re delighted to carry Penco and present it to our customers in the Netherlands and internationally via our shop online. To see Penco in person, please visit our store in Amsterdam.
