Aesthetics are not always something designers take into consideration when developing solar lights. The main objective is to create a functional, eco-friendly product to help solve the earth's energy issues. However, Maiori Objects of Design decided to take their cues from a timeless metropolis when building its outdoor solar lighting system, and used inspiration from the stunning city of Paris.
Le Lampe Paris is also extremely versatile: it's waterproof, can fit in both indoor and outdoor environments and has customizable options. An ideal situation for using these solar lights would be on a picnic that moves from day to night. Just set up the stand upon arrival for charging, then turn it on when the sun goes down in the evening (unless you were looking for a little darker ambiance)!
