Balance between nature and technology

The Clover street luminaire demonstrates an innovative combination of technology and nature. Designed by French product designer Mathieu Lehanneur, it was installed for the first time on the occasion of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, 2015.

Clover comprises a series of flat, leaf-shaped aluminium housings equipped with LED light sources and arranged one above the other facing downwards. The upper section of the housing contains solar panels that allow the luminaire to operate autonomously for three hours.

Matching seating invites passers-by to stop for a while and enjoy the light Clover emits. An added benefit: you can charge your smartphone directly from the pole, which is digitally machined according to an unprecedented industrial process allowing the use of many different wood species.
