More background on our Solar Design work:
Imagine turning the corner and instead of your local gas station and convenience store, people are playing music and charging their electric bicycles and cell phones on a solar-powered charging station. The public is invited to spontaneously DJ with their iPods on the solar powered sound system while their devices and electric vehicles charge. As an urban intervention, the SolarPump is designed to help people re-imagine the future of transportation by showcasing solar electric charging stations as part of the future for carbon-free cities, leaving gas mobility as a thing of the past.
The SolarPump re-purposes vintage technology to demonstrate the possibility of transforming unsustainable products into part of a green future. The nozzle on a reclaimed vintage gas pump has been replaced by a standard electrical outlet, and the underground gas tanks have been replaced by a solar panel roof. Other gasoline-era automobilia have been bent and welded into furniture. Our charging stations have been successful conversation-starters by inspiring dialogue about the shift of oil dependency towards renewable energy and by demonstrating sustainable transportation options. The SolarPump logo is a flying electric scooter, inspired by the Mobil Gasoline Pegasus that first appeared in1934 at the Magnolia Petroleum Company building headquarters in Dallas, Texas.
