Solar Table By Afroditi Krassa

Wednesday, 8 February 2012

Solar table by Afroditi Krassa. Afroditi Krassa's innovating solar table comes with a sleek design and generates free energy.

Solar powered objects don't have to look 'high tech', ugly and gadgety!

This new kind of furniture is a product that can revolutionize the way we produce and store energy. The surface of the table is covered with photovoltaic cells that collect solar energy. No need for complicated installations – Krassa's table can be fitted in any garden or outdoor space.

The overall design is inspired by classic timeless Greek architecture. The base is made out of a solid, carved, black Terrazo piece. The top is covered in elegant Polycrystaline PV cells that create a pattern that resembles a crossword puzzle.

This table is the first of its kind, but Krassa plans to create a bench, light, and flag pole as well.

Afroditi Krassa was born in London in 1974. She studied Product Design at Central Saint Martins College, London from 1993 to 1996. Two of the leading London design consultancies, Priestman Goode and Seymour Powell Ltd. employed her. In 1999, she was accepted at the Royal College of Art, where she studied Product Design. Then she founded her own design consultancy Afroditikrassa Ltd. in 2002.
