Philippe Starck Launches Wind Turbine
Philippe Starck, the iconic designer known for high-design, has gone green to launch a sleek deisgn for a residential-use turbine. The two high-tech turbines will be produced by Italian company, Pramac, and will be available for Milan homes soon. One model is a clear quadrangular model (400W WT), capable of generating 400 watts of power. The second, a helicoidal model (1KW WT) will generate 1 KW of power. The two will run from $3500 to $5000 USD. Starck was quoted explaining the new turbine technology, saying, "Energy should not be a punishment, we should create a desire (among people to produce it)." I’m hoping these eventually become available beyond the initial Italian market!
