the sun, the glass and the light


solar light

Designer: @ Pro Idee

The Calla and the globe mouth-blown glass sculptures light up the garden. Stores energy from the sun during the day – and adds accents of romantic light by night.

It has modern solar- and LED-technology, with an automatic sensor-controlled activation switch. Even during cloudy day, the 6 x 6cm solar module soaks up enough energy to light up the beautiful sculptures. Approximate 10 hours of sunlight is sufficient to fully charge the NiCd-battery for 6-8 hours of light. A sensor automatically activates the lights when it becomes dark.
