Stefano Merlo has sent us his project of a sustainable luminaire that aims to bridge the gap between modern technology and man.
Here is some info from Merlo Stefano:
Nowadays, to save energy is one of the most pressing problems. This is already possible with the contemporary technology, such as low consumption LED light sources and solar panels; but actual products seem to be too far from peopleās everyday uses and in general they don’t require enough interaction to make people aware of the problem.
Energy Bucket is an innovative product that comes from the habit of the past to collect potable water at the well using buckets. In fact, āEnergy Bucketā requires to be exposed by the user under the solar light to recharge (thanks to the solar panels on top), so that it can be carried anywhere and illuminate when the night falls (it works with Wide Beam Superbright LEDs housed on the plastic bucket).
An honest exchange between man and nature: ‘I do something to have something back, clean light!’
