Annuus / Environmental solutions


Design Concept:
Renewable energy is becoming increasingly important to reduce carbon emissions and as conventional fuel sources are being depleted. Solar energy is one solution.
Annuus (product name) is not just a light - it absorbs sunlight during the day and stores it as energy, like a flower does for nutrients. Unlike a flower, people can use Annuus for light when they want.
Through a sensor system in the petals, Annuus will open like a flower and produce lighting after a gentle touch. It can be enjoyed both in daytime and in nightime, to enjoy a beautiful healing atmosphere. It can also be used in emergencies as a source of light.
