A table that photosynthesises electricity
Current table is a piece of furniture that also harvests energy from daylight to charge appliances. The glass table surface contains a Dye Sensitised Solar Cell. Based on photosynthesis it uses the properties of colour to create an electrical current. Unlike classic solar cells, these coloured cells don’t need direct sunlight and are able to function under diffused light.
