The Solar Blind is one of those designs that’ll make you wonder… “Hey, why didn’t I think of that?!”. This design transforms everyday blinds into a multifunctional, efficient way to harness the sun’s energy. Whether it’s at home, the office, or even in a coffee shop, users can tap right into clean electricity to power and charge their devices.
Solar cells are attached to each slat on the blind, creating an entire system that’s capable of storing and converting solar energy into electrical power. While large roof-mounted solar panels can be expensive and difficult to install, Solar Blinds only require a window to absorb solar energy and generate power.
Designers: Park Yonghwa, Lee Sang Jun, Hwang Ki Nam, & Lee Danbee.
