Jang EunHyuk, a South Korean industrial designer, has come up with a concept LED light that runs entirely off-the-grid. Christened Light Bird, the concept light takes inspiration from the feathers of birds to hide solar panels.
Mounted on walls, the Light Bird provides a soft glow outdoors for those moments when all a person wants is some light. Opened during the day and folded at night, the Light Bird is controlled by a rubber button in the center of the light.
At the press of a button, the concept LED light rolls out its solar panels to harness renewable solar energy during daytime. The energy generated is hence stored in an onboard battery for use after dark. The solar panels can be folded back again and the light can be carried inside your house and placed at any place where illumination is needed. The concept features the use of LED light bulbs which consume 70 percent less energy while lasting up to four times longer than incandescent light bulbs commonly used in similar decorative lighting fixtures.
