O*GE Architects and Interactive Gallery in cooperation with Israel Electric Corporation has created a solar powered night garden in Jerusalem that demonstrate the importance and beauty of alternative energy in our aim of protecting the environment and eventually safeguarding the future.
The garden in solely powered by solar energy. With four solar panels of 80x160cm in size, the sunrays are collected that charges the flowers, stored in batteries, and the stored energy are the ones used at night to light up the enchanting night garden. Energy saving LED lights of 1W to 3W at a 24V system illuminates this wonderful and colorful garden. The garden is composed of beautiful flowers made from steel wires covered with a metal mesh, laser cut panels and Hebron glass spheres.
Flowers in the garden include a Giant Lotus Flowers, delicate tulips, and dewdrop flowers. All have different special effects to amuse all of its visitors. The Giant Lotus Flowers with over four meters in diameter has nice effects of occasionally opening and closing its petals while changing colors at a slow motion. The delicate tulips on the other hand illuminates in single color but of different intensities. The gently glowing dewdrops are the ones that create a poetic ambience of silence and beauty. When you visit the Night Garden, you will not only notice the beautiful illuminations, but also the gentle music of Hang that is composed by Ravid Hanf and Andy Isler that completes the warm feeling while in the night garden.
Here in this eco-friendly and energy saving illuminated night garden, things you can do does not limit to only viewing the beauty of the flowers, but it also allows you to have a relaxing moment by laying down on the grass while enjoying the music the garden has as the flowers glow.

Joining with the other carmakers, KIA is now also into eco-friendly cars and recently announced their KIA Pop concept. This zero-emission car concept accommodates 3 passengers and will soon be unveiled at the Paris Motor show on September 30, 2010. How nice it would be that motor companies are helping and did their part in saving the environment. The Kia Pop is a full-electric car and is literally tiny. If ever this concept will result into production, the Pop will be Kia’s first in the Ultra Light market. The Pop is stylish and chic enough for on the busy streets of any major cities.
Working in an office is something very normal to everybody. However, working on a cardboard office is something new to me. This is what the French artist Paul Coudamy has designed in one of the advertising agency in Paris, France. He was able to create furniture out of it, twenty work stations, partitions, meeting rooms and storage with the use of a 4cm thick water resistant honeycomb cardboard mounted with glue and tape. The lighting of the said cardboard office is made from umbrellas. I found this masterpiece as a truly work of art and creativeness. However, I had doubt of the cardboard smell. Normally I do not like the smell of it and it feels like odor pollution will take place. Overall the product design is great.
