Current table is a piece of furniture that produces energy from daylight to charge appliances, all within one room. While reading a book or writing emails, the user can use his/her table to charge appliances. The glass table surface contains a dye-sensitized solar cell. These cells are able to function even under diffused light, which makes Current Table the first piece of furniture that harvests energy indoors, and where utility and aesthetics are combined in everyday objects.
