Electree is such a amazing invention, made by combining the wireless charging NFC technology and eco friendly solar powered charger for cell phones and tablets. This stylish, functional and eco friendly device has been created by French designer Vivien Muller.
The Electree contains an internal battery for storing the solar energy and continuously provides juice to your iPhone or any Android phone for the cost of nothing but only the free natural light. The bonsai inspired tree has 27 twistable leaves are the equipped with 3.7″ wide solar panels. Charge your phone with wireless convenience or use the regular USB cable to charge your iPhone 5 or any tablet.
“Nature has selected over millions of years the most efficient structures to capture solar energy. The tree’s shape is thus the best means to take advantage of solar energy. While studying fractals, I realized that one could draw a tree by repeating and transforming a basic pattern. ” -Vivien
After graduating with a degree in design in 2007, Vivien quickly became a partner at the interior design and architecture firm Metz Atelier Design. In 2009 he became a freelance designer shortly after conceiving the Electree. Vivien often finds his inspiration in nature for his creations, and has a passion for mathematically impossible perspectives, origami, and designing unique intersections between nature and science, like the Octocube, a heater-sculpture based on fractals, the pen ‘Plume’, inspired by bird feathers, and the Electree.
