Honourable Mention
This solar streetlight creates emotionally appealing accents in cityscapes with an organic language of form. The design of the lamp was inspired by a wing – an impression that is underlined by its two-tone colour concept. The orange LEDs, which automatically turn on in the evening, wrap the environment in a warm, gentle light. Converter and storage battery are integrated inside the lamppost. With its freely rotating solar panel, Eco-Wing provides maximum power generation.
