More than half of the world’s population lives an urban lifestyle. We are connected anytime, anywhere, eager for location- based information. We design small-scale solar solutions for the urban environment.

With our modular approach to smart urban furniture we offer charging and sensing hubs as a service. Our core value is to help cities, campuses, corporations and resorts to update their urban context for the mobile generation. 

We change environments.
