A big challenge for the coming years is the production of energy. In accordance with environmental problems, the use of solar cells is spreading. Most of times, these pannels are hidden on the roofs of buildings. However, 5 years ago, a new device appeared, call the solar tree. Designed by Ross Lovegrove from the Museum for Angewandte Kunst (MAK) in Vienna, this tree is used in street asa streetlight. It is a symbiosis between pioneering design and cutting-edge eco-compatible technology.
Solar Tree draws inspiration from the organic forms of nature, reinterpreting the morphology of the tree and introducing the sensuality of the natural world into the urban context. In the words of Ross Lovegrove, “This is a project that celebrates design, nature and art and represents the DNA of our time”.
