Bright pursuit


A sky full of stars – a rare sight for city-dwellers on a clear night.

Artificial light sources prevent the night sky from being seen in all its glory. Now a Dutch-based design firm has developed a streetlight concept that could combat light pollution.

The lamp is inspired by the way grass sways in the wind and resembles a fictional flower that blooms when people draw near.

Equipped with a radar sensor, the motor-operated lamp shade detects pedestrians and opens up as they pass.

With its shade in ‘bloom’, the light bends towards passersby like a living being, following in their wake for a few yards.

Until, reaching a certain point, the shade closes again and the light goes out.
