Business Description                                                                   

CAVENTOU create sustainable smart objects that use the property of colour to convert sunlight into energy. Their first product, the Current Table, functions as a source of energy to charge your devices. The entire top surface of the Current Table is made of dye-sensitised solar cells which, unlike traditional PV cells, operate efficiently under diffused sunlight. This makes Current Table the first piece of furniture capable of harvesting energy indoors. CAVENTOU is working with tech companies to develop a sensor that is integrated into the table to make it a smart object, which reads information on its environment, such as light intensity, and shares this back to the user.
