Champ
Solar Light

 

champ is a solar street light with a tubular collector. so the photocells are exposed to the light in a highly efficient way. the tube is placed on top of the LED lightpoint and collects energy throughout the day.

at night (outshone by the light of the LEDs) the now inactive collector is rendered almost invisible. so the design not only embodies sustainability, but uses high tech to cut the structure to the core.

champ upgrades any public space, without hiding its technology. independent of the mains and universally styled, this solar street light becomes a piece of nomadic radicalism.
