solar glassware: the energy collection

imagine if every object worked as a solar cell?

The Energy Collection designed by Marjan van Aubel consists of glassware that works as a solar cell and a special cabinet. The glasses constantly absorb energy from the surrounding daylight. When you put the glasses in the cabinet, it will collect and store the energy coming from the glasses. You can then use that energy to power a machine or charge your phone.

Van Aubel has won the ‘Doen Materiaalprijs‘ with The Energy Collection, an award that is created to promote the sustainable design practice.
