Robson Cezar's Solar-Powered House


Over recent years, we have featured the evolution of Spitalfields artist Robson Cezar's wooden houses made from boxes collected for him by the stallholders at Whitechapel Market.

This year, Robson has reached the ultimate realisation of his design by fitting his recycled houses with solar panels, which means that they charge in daylight and light up automatically at dusk. And they will do this more or less indefinitely.

Robson has enjoyed employing the colours, printed lettering and images of fruit and vegetables on the boxes, and made windows from coloured mushroom crates. Each house is a day's work and he has been working for months to create this spectacular new collection.

He has made these sturdy cardboard ones of a similar design but each with different colours, lettering and images.

These houses are sculptures not toys and we do not recommend them for children under the age of twelve.
