Sculptural streetlights powered by solar energy.
The folks over at Marco De Gregorio have designed a stunning way to make the streets of tomorrow elegant and illuminate them with green energy after dark. Known as the “City Leaves,” the conceptual streetlights are aesthetically designed to resemble natural forms.
