Solar-powered gadgets are often strictly practical, with little consideration for design sensibilities. That’s not the case with the Morning Glory, a series of LED flowers designed by Wendy Legro, a graduate student at The Netherland’s Design Academy of Eindhoven. Legro’s flowers soak up sun during the day and bloom at night.
Morning Glory features a flowering structure that clamps up during the day (or whenever sunlight streams in) and blooms in a snowflake pattern at night, revealing a series of LEDs. The design is, according to Legro, an attempt to counteract the normal competition between artificial and natural light.
We love the flowers, but we do have one question: when do they go on sale?
