Solar furniture goes far beyond the traditional role of furniture
Sun is the source of all energy and now human society is once again turning to it for the sake of sustainability. Producing energy from non-renewable sources has polluted our environment almost beyond repair. We cannot mend the damage our actions have caused, but we can definitely try to curb causing further damage to the nature.
This is only possible if we adopt solar power in our lifestyle and utilize it in as many different ways as possible. The use of solar power will decrease the production of Green House Gases and our dependence on fossil fuels. Here is a list of unique solar furniture to help you adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle.
The Solar Table looks just like any average table, yet it packs a solar punch with incredible features and functionality. Designed by Devang A. Shah and Mike Low, the table produces electricity by using solar power and stores it for charging laptops, smart phones, lights, radios and water purifiers.
The top of the table is made of solar panels and it includes an inverter as well. The wall outlet makes it even more convenient and user friendly. You can sit around it at night and use it as a study table while charging your phones on top of it.
