About this project

FlowerLight

How to integrate Solar powered lighting in a innovative new Elho product?

Challenge

A solar powered outdoor light in combination with a flowerpot, with a descent light effect, a long burning duration, for an affordable price and living up to the Elho quality standards… quite a challenge!

Solutions

By placing the LED in an open, difuse, elevated lampshade, we created illuminance of both the plants and lampshade, reaching a duo ambient light effect with great shadows. The wooden pole gives the FlowerLight a touch of nature which aligns beautifully with its green content. The use of mono-crystaline PV cells gives the high efficiency we needed and in combination with a high efficient LED we reached the goal of ‘1 hour light per 1 hour direct sun’. The 2 push-in connectors makes the seld assembly super easy and the packaging extreme comapct.

Result

A unique combination of flower pot and solar light with great performance and with a RRP of Euro 29,95 a very competitive price point, available in a rich set of colours.
