The Flower Solar Street Lamp by Luís MRPS
The Flower Solar Street Lamp concept promises to be an important step towards energy conservation. The Flower Solar Street Lamp, designed byLuís MRPS, uses solar energy to illuminate public places such as parksand streets in a sustainable manner. It does not require an electricconnection with the grid and obviously saves electricity. It is named so because it looks like a flower and its petals accumulate solar energyduring daytime to be used in the night.
