Invention in Design: Marjan van Aubel
Marjan van Aubel founded Caventou to create products which naturally integrate solar technology into everyday life. Taking inspiration from nature, and collaborating with scientists and engineers, van Aubel has designed the award-winning Current Table and Window that can generate solar energy indoors.
Invention in Design is a series of films, panel discussions and workshops, part of the New British Inventors programme, celebrating pioneering British designers and exploring the potential of design to shape the future internationally.
An emerging generation of designers are developing new modes of thinking and cross-disciplinary practice. They have the potential to shape the future, capture our imaginations and fundamentally change our everyday lives.
