Solar Tree Light Featured in Lexus Video Series
- 9 february 2009
‘The Power of h‘ is an online video series by Lexus that is highlighting interesting eco projects. One video takes a look at designer Ross Lovegrove’s ‘Solar Tree’ outdoor light. The light is solar powered and works completely off the grid. Lovegrove describes the Tree as an example of how design and responsible use of energy can coexist. Lighting manufacturer Artemide was brought in to fabricate the large fixture. He says that many designers create based on the knowledge that they have, often limiting potential new ideas. Lovegrove started thinking about the Solar Tree by asking ‘Why couldn’t it be like this?’ He hopes that seeing the Solar Tree inspires more designers to find solutions by first asking questions.
