Hakan Gürsu of Designnobis developed the Solbooth – a beautiful solar-powered phone booth that we’d love to see on city streets. The transparent shelter blends into the urban environment with its see-through surfaces, and it emphasizes accessibility with a convenient ramp. The Solbooth is designed to serve as an all-in-one point of communication for making calls and finding info on a city.
