Solar Pavilion Dutch Design Week
The Solar Pavilion is the closing event of the Solar Biennale 2022. The temporary pavilion was designed by V8 architects in close collaboration with Marjan van Aubel Studio to demonstrate the power of the sun during Dutch Design Week. Energy and thus light and heat were generated on site using the latest technology and aesthetic solar panels. The pavilion's demountable construction made it completely circular. The suppliers and producers of the various techniques retained ownership of their products and took them back into the sales or production process after Dutch Design Week.
The Solar Pavilion places people at the heart of the solar revolution and is an energetic meeting place to experience the poetic, sensory nature of solar energy. Visitors could experience that solar panels are more than technical elements. It explores new surfaces for harvesting solar energy.
Central to the lighting plan for the Solar Pavilion are the waterproof Tugra LED luminaires. Fresh on the market, this functional and aesthetic luminaire has already won the Red Dot Design Award 2022, the iF Design Award 2022 and the German Innovation Award 2022.
