This solar energy lamp proves that sustainable and high-tech design can also be very poetic and beautiful. The inspiration for this lamp was the famous Flora Danica flower engravings. The vast Danish botanical work Flora Danica, begun in 1761, consists of 3,240 engravings in folio of all the wild plants that grew in the kingdom of Denmark. My design is a modern interpretation of the dandelion flower. The leaves of the lamp have solar panels and can be turned towards the best sun position. The lamp produces its own energy and lights up at night. The simple shape of the lamp and the white look gives the lamp a light and poetic appearance.  Eva Harlou* is very much into sustainable design and buildings and we see it as our great responsibility to show that high-tech solutions and green design can be beautiful.
