I was inspired by a problem that I experienced in Cartagena a coast-wise city in Colombia. The coast-side of the city is busy and safe by day, but in the night it is abandoned and dangerous due to the lack of public lighting, as the grid cannot be transmitted to the shores.
Flow is a bamboo-made, self maintaining public lighting which operates on the principle of vertical wind turbine. The whole lamp disintegrates in nature except for the electronics LEDs, wires and dynamo which after time can be recycled without down-cycling. Due to the simple junctions and mechanics, it can also be produced by the local unskilled workforce.
