Overview: Ilumineat is made of Graphene and OLED technology, which makes it lightweight and malleable. It is powered by flexible solar cells located on the reverse of the canvas. It has been designed to accompany the user through the whole process of cooking to the final presentation before eating, being a powerful assistant and a smart kitchen tablecloth.
When cooking, you’ll be able to choose the dishes you like from anywhere in the world, learning how to prepare them through step-by-step videos to reach an excellent result.
After the preparation comes the presentation of your gastronomic masterpiece. When you put the plate on the Ilumineat, the canvas recognizes the dish and displays a short animation in relation to it. The plate is illuminated and the images fade softly into a background color.
Finally, it’s time to eat! While you enjoy your dish, you will see how it links to this interactive tablecloth, creating an instance of harmony between the two. So relax and let Ilumineat do the work.

Overview: The Ecologic Aircraft by designer Daphnis Fournier aims to be the first fully electric passenger plane, utilizing an inflatable structure above the main cabin that contains flexible photovoltaic panels to collect solar energy while flying above the clouds. For efficiency during take-off (when the most power is lost) the “balloon” remains flat, inflating only after reaching a maximum altitude.

Overview: Voda Design’s Solar Bench is a multifunctional streetlight/bench combination that harnesses solar energy to power its overhead LED lamp. Solar panels built into the bench case make it possible to place the unit in any location independent of a local power supply. Integrated outlets can also be used by the public as a daytime charging station for laptops, cell-phones, or other electronic devices. This super-convient design is a great solution for minimizizing wasted space while reducing our carbon footprint.

W.E.T – Water Enhanced Tempelhof


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The W.E.T. system harnesses solar energy and H20 to enhance public spaces. As it rains, the design collects water used for cleaning & fire emergencies. Excess water is kept in an underground collection tank where it is then dispersed through misters to keep the public cool on hot days. On especially rainy days, extra water is used to supplement the surrounding irrigation. On top of the beacon, a solar panel collects the sun’s energy to power lighting at the foot & top of the system that keeps the area illuminated at night.

Overview: Inspired by the process of photosynthesis and the ability of leaves to make food for the plant, designer duo Hyosang Pak and Dongseong Jeong have designed this sweet Leaf-shaped Solar Charger for mobile phones. The solar cells are placed on one surface of the leaf and this side sticks to the window glass to soak in the sun. Once charges, simply pull the ‘leaf’ and latch it onto the back of your dying phone and juice it up.
