Daan Roosegaarde has designed a beautiful and innovative glowing bicycle path that, when illuminated at night by glowing pebbles and LEDs, looks like Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting. This amazing bike path is one kilometer long, it’s created using both glow-in-the-dark technology and solar-powered LEDs, is located in Brabant, the Dutch county where Van Gogh was born and raised.
The swirling, glowing forms on the path’s surface will help bicyclists stay on track when they ride at night. Glowing Lines are lines that charge at day-time, and glow at night for eight hours. The first road has been realised, and will be further launched international.
The recent Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bicycle path is made of thousands twinkling stones inspired by ‘Starry Night’. The path combines innovation with cultural heritage in the city of Nuenen NL, the place where Van Gogh lived in 1883.
