Marjan van Aubel knows his way around an electrical diagram, so she fused furniture designing with some electrical expertise to create this energy efficient table. Called the Current Table, it uses dye solar cells to absorb energy and charge your devices.
He worked with a company called Solaronix on the project and they make inexpensive dye solar cels which uses a chemical process similar to photosynthesis.
