What a smart use of outdoor tablespace. This is the Sun Table, created by Devang A. Shah and Michael Low of Sudia Design Labs out of Brooklyn. It's an outdoor table with a top that is also a solar panel. That panel collects and stores energy that can be reused by household electronics.
Says the designer of the Sun Table: A product that pushes people to spend more time outdoors will be beneficial for humanity. Let's get rooted in nature again, even if it's in a 21st century kind of way. The Sun Table will be available next March through Sudia's store and will be priced at $3600, including shipping.
