Rainbow Streetlights / Streetlights

Rainbow Streetlights
Rainbow Streetlights

Sunlight can be broken into different colors through a prism. The colors are usually called "spectrum" or "rainbow". Rainbow Streetlights is inspired by this beautiful physical phenomenon.
In the top part of the Streetlights have a triangular sink. When the sink is filled with water after the rain, the triangular sink will become Rainbow Streetlights allowing sunlight passing through to project a “rainbow” on the ground.
This design intends to encourage people to find, observe and create the beauty of nature in life.
