Lightly solar powered clothe-spins illuminate city streets

lightly solar powered clothespins illuminate city streets

Designers Idan Noyberg and Gal Bulka have designed the ‘lightly’ clothespin, a sustainable twist on an everyday item that lights up the cityscape in a sea of vibrant colours. By simply securing the cloth pegs to hanging garments on the street, an internal system autonomously shines at night. each clasp has a small solar panel attached to the top of its clip, which collects sunlight throughout the day. By dusk, a sensor supplies a tiny battery pack with the cue to turn on, automatically illuminating the LEDs in colour. The intelligent twist on an ordinary household chore adds a visual contribution to the street-scape while maintaining an environmentally friendly design.
