Energetic Energies 0min 36sec
Panasonic's theme at Milano Salone 2013 was "Energetic Energies" and this was the main presentation. 6,000 miniature solar panels cover the white cubes that represent buildings in urban cities like plants, and the group of buildings covered by these plants form hills and mountains. In this city of the future, technology and nature are harmoniously integrated. Mr. Hirata explained, "Solar panels create energy from the sun. In that sense, they are very similar to plants." This thinking is where the vibrant concept of this exhibition originated.
