Wind-Powered Bamboo Flow Lights

How do you channel electricity to the dark Colombian seaside shore when there’s no way to get to a grid? Think outside the box. And that’s what the Ingendesign designers did – they created a self-sufficient bamboo “flow” lighting system based on the principle of vertical wind power plants in which the lights are powered by constant prevailing coastal winds. The bamboo flow lights are in a spiral shape that’s able to capture wind from any direction. They’re made from bamboo and recyclable electronic components and are built to be almost completely biodegradable. The lights are also simply beautiful.
