“Solar Tree” 2.0 // Various locations

Back to overview

In 2011, Ross Lovegrove’s Solar Tree was first launched as a product by Artemide, a manufacturer of sophisticated designer lamps. The Solar Tree is a novel way of lighting cities by means of solar energy. The system combines LEDs and photovoltaic cells, storing energy in the daytime which is released for LED operation at night. The result is a stunning new lighting mood. The Solar Tree 2.0 is the latest member of this product family: Thanks to its modular design, poles of different heights facilitate individual, attractive city lighting. Solar Trees allow for functional, network-enabled interactive solutions. These lamps are kind to humans and to the environment.
