Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde‘s cycle path, illuminated with patterns based on Vincent van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night, officially opened in Nuenen, Netherlands yesterday. The swirling patterns used on the kilometer-long Van Gogh cycle route through the Dutch province of Noord Brabant (where the artist was born and raised). A nearby solar panel is used to generate power to illuminate the coated surface, which was developed with infrastructure firm Heijmans. LEDs along the side of certain curves in the path cast extra light, meaning the path will still be partially lit if the weather has been too cloudy for the panel to charge the surface to its full brightness. After its official opening at 8pm this evening, the bicycle path in Nuenen – just east of Eindhoven – will be open to the public year-round for free.
