Papilio is a wind-powered street lamp that reduces light pollution

Berlin design student Tobias Trübenbacher has developed a lamp post with an integrated wind turbine that produces its own renewable energy and only lights up when needed.

Papilio was designed to slash the light pollution and emissions associated with street lighting and mitigate its impact on both humans and animals as well as the environment.

The motion-activated design uses wind – a natural, renewable energy source – to power its turbines.
