SHINKANSEN BULLET TRAIN BY EIJI NAKATSU The first high-speed train was Japan’s Shinkansen, but it emerged from tunnels at 320km/h with a sonic boom.

GALLERY SOLAR TREE BY ROSS LOVEGROVE Known for ‘fat-free design’, Ross Lovegrove’s inspiration is nature. When designing urban lighting for Artemide, he echoed how stems can spread in a pot plant, and incorporated their power source – natural light – via photovoltaic cells. The 5.5 metre-high Solar Tree can shine even over a cloudy week. THE DESIGN ISSUE j 69
