arboleds by gino fabbri from mexico
designer's own words:
arboLED’s are Artificial Urban Landscape Units; totally autonomous, solar powered and self operated.
The units are composed of two basic elements: a plastic trunk that houses the battery and the photovoltaic sensors; and multiple metal wire flexible branches that hold LED’s at the tip and support the hanging solar panels.
The hanging solar panels capture sun light charging the battery in the trunk of the unit.
When sun light is out, the photo sensor releases the energy stored in the battery sending it to LED’s and consequently lighting them up.
