The table Current is a piece of furniture that functions as a source of electricity.

Designed with accurate precision and good research and study of science and chemistry, the table represents a revolutionary product and an aesthetic solution for the future of technology.

Author of the table that generates electricity is the London designer Marjan van Aubel, who is intuitive and curious and believes that inter-disciplinary cooperation is the future of design.

The table Current features a design that is practical and has the power to charge electronic devices, but also stands out with its distinctive modern look. The surface of the table contains dye-synthesized solar cells that create electricity. Unlike classical solar cells, these do not require direct light and can function with diffused light.
