The ‘Invisible Streetlight’ designed by Jongoh Lee are another example of the intricate bond between design and technology. The leaves play a role in making the invisible streetlight ‘invisible’ without damaging nature. During daytme, the leaves are almost invisible, mingling with the leaves on the tree, while at night time the leaves come to life with the help of a luminance sensor.

The leaves emits light at nighttime by saving energy from sunlight during the day. The most innovative element of Invisible Streetlight is that it does not require a support because the flexible body in the shape of tree branch is directly installed to the trees lining a street. Installation is simple in parks and outskirts of urban centers, and the Invisible Streetlight does not spoil scenic beauty of the surrounding areas. But yes, you need tree-lined streets for this amazing concept to work well.
