FlowerLight

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

Challenge

This time, StudioKees came up with a challenging concept for Elho. 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. The resulting duo ambient light effect showed fantastic 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. 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 self assembly super easy and the packaging extremely compact.

Result

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