Current Window

Current window is a modern take of stained glass. Whilst the coloured panels of glass perform their traditional role, they also generate electricity from daylight which can then be used for power.

Imagine these windows on places such as churches and public spaces where these windows harvest the energy for the indoor lightning. Current Window offers us an example of energy harvesting in a natural and aesthetic way for the future. Its electricity can be used to power appliances inside the house.


The glass pieces are made of Dye Sensitized Solar cells, which uses the properties of colour to create an electrical current. The technique is based on the photosynthesis in plants. Similarly to the green chlorophyll absorbing light, the coloured window glass harness energy. You can plug in your devices through integrated USB ports in the window ledge.
