48 Seductive Street Lights

From Tree-Shaped Solar Lights to Unexpected Urban Decor

— December 29, 2011 — Eco
No urban landscape would be complete without a series of street lights lining every avenue, boulevard and drive. In recent years designers, urban planners and engineers have been looking to find a more environmentally friendly method to light the average urbanite's way. What has emerged from the morally sound effort is nothing short of extraordinary, and above and beyond the technological feats of these innovative designs are the dazzling aesthetics many of these pieces boast.

Sure to turn the heads of even the most hardened urban dwellers, these concrete jungle twinklers are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Painting the asphalt in a moody, romantic glow that would make their forefathers proud, these seductive street lights prove people can be kind to the environment without compromising the charms of the past.

Creating beauty out of light and shadow, these sinuous street lights will have you dreaming up scenes from your favorite film noir.
