Clover is a series of 'trees' encompassing energy, functions and materials. Mathieu Lehanneur describes them as 'hybrid objects par excellence, combining light and seating, wood and solar panels, town and country'. Clover features large aluminum domes which release downward LED light to minimise light pollution and energy loss. An additional dome, faced upwards, is equipped with solar panels to produce enough energy to power the lamps for three hours. A small hatch is also available where passers-by can charge their smartphones.
