Sustainable energy is the motivation and inspiration for this unique lighting product. The Solar Powered Wallpaper
is a result of the efforts to bring together
environmentally conscious design with a strong sense of aesthetics and the latest in innovative lighting technology.
Designed to work both with solar power and conventional energy to bring beautiful lighting to your environment.
This project was developed by Marta Lwin, Ty Whitfield, Teresita Cochran, and Ramakrishnan Subramanian during the
Sustainable Energy Class
By embedding electroluminescent materials into the design pattern of the wall paper and incorporating a built-in light sensor,
the wallpaper can respond to the lighting requirement of a room, acting as a decorative element when a room is naturally bright,
and as a flat wallpaper light when the room requires more light. With power supplied from a solar charged battery, it can also be
manually controlled to increase or decrease luminosity. Sustainable, efficient, functional, and technologically sexy. The idea was
inspired by the sustainable designs of Ross Lovegrove, Julian Lwin , and Droog Design.
Check it out at NYU Tisch School for the
Arts Winter Show, December 19-20 in New York City.
