This Rocking Chair Creates Energy While You Rock Your Little Ones To Sleep - Recyclebank
Now you can help your little darlings drift off while you “experience production and consumption of electricity in a gentle and rewarding way” with the Murakami Chair. Rocking children to sleep must date back many centuries. Coupled with a friendly book, there is just about no other place a little one would rather be than in Mom’s arms in the rocking chair. Well now you can help your little darlings drift off while you “experience production and consumption of electricity in a gentle and rewarding way” with the Murakami Chair. Designed by Rochus Jacob, it uses the kinetic energy produced by a rocking motion to power an attached OLED lamp. Winner of the designboom’s Green Life competition, this sleek, modern rocking chair uses nano-dynamo technology - built into the skids of the chair - and gently back and forth movement to create and store energy. Why waste all that kinetic energy when you could make good use of it? Share this with Your Friends
