The Solar Bench is a simple, but efficient design that softly inclines its leg to receive the maximum amount of solar energy with the minimum surface of photovoltaic glass. Its support is inclined to absorb optimal annual sun exposure in London’s latitude, 51° north. The collected solar power feeds the energy-efficient lights, which are regulated by wind velocity. Higher wind gusts increase the level of brightness. Thus, the set of benches in a kinetic installation directly responds to the weather conditions.
