Add light to the table top of Plateau Picnic by changing the steel discs with Point Sun. Ambient and reading light in the evening with no cables and no installation required. Point Light is 100% solar powered, resistant to weather conditions, intelligently controlled and CO2-neutral.

Holscher Design

In 2015 out-sider invited Holscher Design to participate in our competition to design the bench set of the future – and they won!

The winning proposal was primarily selected for its graphic and iconic basic form, yet it was also a cohesive, innovative piece of furniture featuring a large number of seats facing one another. After a couple of minor adjustments Plateau was created in 2016.

PLATEAU is design protected.

Point Sun light unit
Solar cell: Monocrystalline, 300mW. Battery: NiMh, 3.6V/3.100mAh. LED: 4 x white, 3000K. Electronics: Intelligent processor controlled for optimum energy storage and light optimization incl. RTC-clock.

Light function
During daylight hours the solar energy gets stored on a battery - through a solar cell. At dusk the light will turn on (via a preset clock) and light up all evening and night, according to the charged energy. At sunrise the light will turn off again.
The light is omni-directional and directed horizontally and downwards to the Plateau Picnic table through a reflector and frosted cylinder.

Storage mode
Point Sun is delivered in ‘storage mode’. The electronic components are in sleep mode to conserve battery charge during delivery. When Point Sun has been exposed to daylight, or powerful artificial light, for approximately two hours, the product will automatically turn on in the evening.
