Laura Sink from The Art Institute of Pittsburg has just created the innovative and conceptual product called the Nature Levo. It is a small, vertical-axis turbine with a primary purpose of catching wind from any direction. This creatively shaped stationary object can be installed to any existing structures like the telephone pole, flag pole, chimney mount, or in your usual backyard. Created for Novomer Plastic, the Natura Levo has a necessary steel bearings, adjustable cylinder mount, and small housings. This product is perfect for today’s generation of learners. It will teach our young learners to be aware of the things that can help us save the earth naturally.
Laura Sink says :
Natura Levo is a small wind, vertical axis wind turbine. It is a 66″ tall turbine that contains two non-traditional blades that can catch wind from any direction. These blades are fastened within a unique steel component which also houses the tapered bearings allowing the blades to spin with little friction. The center axis is a beautifully formed stationary shape that mounts to existing architecture. The intended architecture can be anything ranging from a telephone pole, to an old chimney mount, to a flag pole in a residential back yard. Natura Levo is intended to harness energy from a renewable energy source while co-existing with its natural surroundings. Natura Levo should be so beautiful that it raises awareness of natural energy by admiration of its design.
Natura Levo is made primarily of Novomer plastic, with necessary steel bearings, adjustable cylinder mount, and small housings. The steel components are machined, and with the exception of the housings, these are standard forms. The remaining steel pieces would be machined in 3 separate entities and welded together. The axis is Novomer and injection blow molded; the blades are a bit more involved. They would be formed in 4 pieces and snapped together. The nature of the rotation would strengthen the fastened segments by using the natural force. These 4 pieces would be injection molded.
