Current Window is a modern version of stained glass using current technologies. The coloured pieces of glass generate electricity from daylight and can even harness diffused sunlight.
The glass pieces are made of ‘Dye Sensitised Solar Cells’, which use the properties of colour to create an electrical current — just like photosynthesis in plants. Similarly to the way chlorophyll absorbs various shades of green light, the coloured window panes harness energy. Electric devices can be plugged in via integrated USB ports in the window ledge.
