Wind Turbine Art: Portable, Wind-Powered Lights


Young Dutch designers demakersvan have created a wind-powered outdoor light inspired by windmills. Called Light Wind, the freestanding design is topped by a 2m-diameter propeller. The blades are made out of sail fabric, so there’s no possibility someone will have their head taken off by one of these. Here’s how the designers describe the turbine:

An outside lamp drawn from our home surroundings. The gently sweeping Dutch windmills were actually perfect generators of their own. With that in mind, we made this lamp. With every breeze it stores energy, enough to enjoy every summer evening until forever.
