The slightly disturbing thing about green energy-generating devices is that they hardly blend in with nature. Surprisingly enough, it was the Japanese who, in briefly setting aside their futuristic tendencies, led the way in greening the eco-friendly with a foliage plant-like solar cell module.

Improving on this idea, designer Mac Funamizu presents an upgrade to present a potential application and boost the stylish aspect of the concept.

The proposed house accessory employs the organic thin-film solar cells of the above-mentioned novelty onto a slick flowerpot. The pure white container includes a smooth cavity to accommodate your busy mobile phone (your iPhone in particular) and energize it eco-style. The superb idea will mean the end of awkward charging cables and devices, and the beginning of a charge-to-decorate era in our gadget-saturated lives.
