Making A Big Deal Out of Lights & Trash

Solar power and waste disposal is always a winning combination with the green brigade, but unlike some loft concepts, the City Context is a very practical and utilitarian design. It’s the combo of solar powered streetlamps with color-coded dustbins within the shaft of the lamp. Icons on the bin indicate its use and help in garbage segregation in its first level itself.

Garbage collectors operate the open the bin using a magnetic card. So theft, accidental topples and hygiene are tackled at one go. Awesome!

City Context is a 2011 IDEA Award Winner!

Designers: Li-Te Lo, Song-Jung Chen, Tai-Yen Lee, Chun-Wei Hsu & Cheng-Yu Tsai

    too much styling, for a simple idea.
    I think streetlamp is not a luxurious yacht, it needs to be simple cheap and objective.

    1 imo the lantern looks ugly
    2 the pole is impossible to make using conventional mass production methods.
    3 extremely cost-ineffective (product cost will be way too high)
