Belle Journée / alarm clock

Belle Journée
Belle Journée

“Belle Journée,” a night-time light & alarm clock powered by a tiny thin solar panel, is capable of solar energy conversion and conservation to be used in night lighting. It enables users to wake up on time to enjoy sunshine, and convert solar energy by simply attaching its base to the window. The affixation takes place by making use of the difference of air pressure between inside and outside of the apparatus.

At night, "belle journée” becomes a night-light, when it is removed from the window base. After the alarm clock rings in the morning, users need to put "belle journée" back in its base on the window while they wake up and enjoy the sunshine as it is streaming through the window, and get ready to start a great day.
