Electree bonzai solar charger leaves you craving

You do not have much to look at a solar charger. They are etched out in standard shapes and sizes using the same gray crap strictly confining their usage to little else than ensuring sufficient charge for our ever-hungry batteries. Electree too does the same, but with grace and style.

Designed by Vivien Muller, Electree is wonderful sculpture befitting contemporary interiors motivated by sustainable lifestyle. The solar charger which has height of roughly 42 cm mimics a bonzai, which has leaves that are actually photovoltaic panels to harness solar energy during the day. The energy generated gets stored at the base of the charger in a hidden battery, which also feeds a USB port.  The charger has 42 cells, which is equivalent to an entire surface of 2178 cm². Electree is an amazingly brilliant piece of work that embraces functionality with aesthetics, and leaves you craving.
