Energy Generating Dance Floors

A Sustainable Dance Club

— October 15, 2006 — Eco
An innovative firm named Enviu has developed the world’s first energy generating dance floor as part of their Sustainable Dance Club. 

From Enviu:
Producing and consuming in a responsible manner are no longer reserved for a small group. Enviu – innovators in sustainability - and Döll - studio for the art of building - have developed the Sustainable Dance Club together. An attractive way of clubbing combined with a low impact on the environment. Soon you can generate energy while dancing and flush the toilet with rainwater. The color of the walls changes as a reaction to the heat without any energy use and you can drink a biological beer at the water basin on the ‘relax roof’. These are just a few examples of what the Sustainable Dance Club can entail.

The program of The Critical Mass has been compiled by the bookers of CrimeJazz and Sound Architecture with the best soul, funk and electro. Enjoy the visuals of Urbi et Orbi and the innovative design of Döll. Be surprised by the culinary theatre of Mischa van Teeffelen. Customize your clothing by the honest fashion brand Kuyichi. Drink a responsible beer from the province of Limburg. Pick Oké fruit in The Garden of Delight with TruusTrendy and dance in the light of the energy efficient LED-wand from Philips. Be a part of The Critical Mass!
