Comments Off on Alain Gilles’ Nomad Solar-Powered Portable Lamp is Much Safer Than Kerosene

Addressing a string of deadly kerosene accidents in slums that have killed hundreds of people and left even more homeless, designer Alain Gilles has created a safer alternative called the Nomad solar lamp that will be presented at Milan Design Week 2012 . Powered by 12 energy efficient LED lights , a 5 watt solar panel, and two lithium ion batteries, the plastic lamp has a silicon crown and is designed specifically for people who do not have access to the national grid for electricity. It can be hung up or stood alone, or it can be carried by a handle when on the go, and it was designed to withstand a certain amount of accidental abuse.

Comments Off on LPA’s ExplorOcean Newport Beach Museum is Draped in Green & Capped With Solar Panels

Newport Beach, California has a storied history with the Pacific Ocean, and a proposed museum wants to turn that experience into an edutainment attraction. The ExplorOcean , a radical update to Newport’s humble Harbor Nautical Museum, promises to be a fresh tourist magnet with what they dub a ‘4-D’ theater, interactive displays, and a pedestrian friendly pavilion. Architects LPA, Inc. include some great environmentally savvy features as well, like a green wall and enormous solar electric roof and overhang. The design is not all smooth sailing, though, as it will replace a creaky, yet beloved amusement park adjacent to Balboa Pavilion , and many citizens think it will erase the historic character of the marina.
