nothing design group: tree solar streetlights

tree solar streetlights in angkor wat, cambodia

korean studio nothing design group and asiana airlines, along with the korea international cooperation agency (KOICA) have collaborated to develop and install solar powered streetlights to a world cultural heritage site appointed by UNESCO in angkor wat, cambodia. the lights have been put there to protect and provide safety for tourists visiting the area.

the solar powered streetlight project is the outcome of an agreement made between asiana and KOICA, in which both parties wish to provide ‘free of charge aid activities’ to promote and improve cambodia’s image and brand value. nothing design group and asiana have installed 16 solar powered streetlights around angkor wat, and are planning to install 5 to 10 additional streetlights a year until 2015. in comparison to typical streetlamps that use incandescent bulbs (150W), the contributed solar-powered streetlights lower the CO2 emissions to 240kg – the equivalent to planting 86 pine trees.

  • An interesting dichotomy. While appreciating the input of the companies involved, wish there was more imaginative thought given to the advertising on the poles. The lights themselves show great imagination d;-)

  • Maybe he will be flattered… Good design ideas find many followers and copy cats.
