Just outside Eindhoven in the Netherlands designer Daan Roosegaarde has creates a 1 KM stretch of bike path inspired by Van Gogh’s “Starry Night“. 50,000 small pebbles were coated in a luminescent material manufactured by Heijmans and then pressed into the bike path concrete. These pebbles essentially charge during the day in natural sunlight and glow in the dark after sundown. Summed up beautifully by the designer “Some people will come because they’re interested in safety and energy-friendly landscapes, others will come because they want to experience art and science”.
