Light hits surfaces, is reflected, and bounces away. This organic solar cell lamp utilises and gathers the energy from light sources that would otherwise have bounced off into nothingness, in order to spread an atmospheric light when amber fades the sky.
I have created a lamp that paves the way for how we can incorporate a new generation of solar cells into our everyday objects. Together with solar cell researchers at Epishine, I have built a system for integrating organic thin-film solar cells into design products.
The system is made up of screens that protect the solar cells, these screens can be put together in many constellations. I have considered the solar cells as a material in themselves, and integrated them into my design as a central form element.
With this project, I want to participate in the pursuit of a more sustainable and circular society by taking responsibility as a designer through value-driven methods with a view to apply sustainable innovations to real products. I see an opportunity to show the design world how far we have progressed, and above all, in what direction we are heading.
