Solar Tree is a light fixture combining an innovative design with the technical performances of LED lighting systems using solar energy supplied from a photovoltaic system. This project aims to combine the reduced environmental impact, especially deriving from a low absorption of fossil fuel-based energy, with the need to ensure constant operation and expected light performances. The operation of this light fixture is not influenced by weather randomness and project changes due to winter periods (e.g. number of panels, accumulator dimensioning). These project changes concerning dimensions and weights would imply higher costs, and the fixture would not, nevertheless, ensure continuous working. In fact, hybrid versions are increasingly used in leading sectors.For this reason Artemide has developed the Solar Tree project which, with a mixed configuration of accumulators / solar energy and mains power supply, can combine Energy-saving and functionality at the best. Structure consisting of curved steel poles of different diameters and heights, with a maximum total height of about 5,5m over road level. This system consisting of 10 “stems of grass” with 40mm Ø. 1 LED approximately about 1 W protected by a diffuser screen in PETG and 10 poles with 76mm Ø supporting the heads. The poles are painted with outdoor epoxy paint in a light green colour shading into white. The 10 heads, housing the photovoltaic cells in their upper part, are supported by poles with a diameter of 76mm; 20 power LEDs, which can be supplied with power up to 500mA and have a white neutral colour temperature, are housed in the lower part of 4 of them, on an aluminium dissipator. They are provided with a screen in plastic material which ensures protection against water and dusts. The base is made of hot-galvanised steel plate to be fixed to the ground. Otherwise it is possible to use a base, always in galvanised steel, with reinforced concrete parts forming a circular bench. In this case the base can rest on the ground without the need of further fixing systems.The connection/wiring parts, the control and recharge boards and the batteries are contained in several watertight boxes, provided with male and female connectors with IP Rating IP65 or higher, placed at the foot of the base or inside the concrete bench, according to the technical specifications of the Solar Tree version supplied.Benches in white painted concrete, with second coat of anti-graffiti paint.
Solar Tree 户外灯
Artemide成立于1960年并且是全球家喻户晓的知名灯具品牌之一, 值得注意的还有Artemide所坚持的"人类之光The Human Light" 的哲学概念. 如今Artemide更是和设计, 革新以及意大利制造生产的名词画上等号.
同时藉由设计产品, Artemide也为国际设计的历史贡献很多, 例如Elisse（1967年,设计师维科 马吉斯德地Vico Magistretti）, 托勒密Tolomeo（1989年, 设计师米歇尔 德 鲁奇Michele De Lucchi和约翰 卡罗法西纳Giancarlo Fassina）和管道Pipe（2004年, 设计师赫梭Herzog和德 梅隆De Meuron）这些全部都有得到黄金指南针奖Compasso d'Oro.
在1994年Artemide获得黄金指南针奖Compasso d'Oro所颁发的终身成就奖以及在1997年具有相当声望的欧洲国际设计奖, 除此之外, Artemide的灯具还被列为国际等级的当代设计代表作品, 同时也展示在世界各大现代艺术博物馆和世界设计产品收藏系列。
