Integrating solar technology naturally into our everyday lives
Current table is a new kind of energy source within the home or office. Its integrated solar cells uses the property of colour to create an electrical current, just like photosynthesis.
The dye-sensitised solar cells also work efficiently under diffuse light — effectively making it the first piece of furniture to harvest energy indoors.
With no cables, Current Table is self sufficient and can be used to charge your devices. It is intelligent too and show how it works best: through an app you read light intensity and how much energy has been stored.
Current Window uses the latest solar cell technology to generate electricity from daylight.
Its dye-sensitised solar cells work much like the process of photosynthesis, turning the properties of colour into an electrical current for devices and appliances.
Its entirely scalable too, so more surface area means more energy harvested.
