Let the sun shine

There's no doubt about it, it's hip to be green. And although environmental no longer equals woolen socks in sandals, some green products still lack a bit of a design touch.

Solar panels instantly spring to mind. We all have to do our bit, but I cringe every time I pass a roof covered with solar tiles. Fortunately Danish designer Astrid Krogh has come up with a way to save the world in style. Her SunTiles are curtains woven of solar cell plates. They do not only collect the energy from the sunlight but also store the heat from the sun.

I know what you mean... I do the same cringing about the solar tiles. It would be wonderful to have a stylish
answer to the sun tiles! Thanks for sharing this Danish idea.
