> SMIT is a sustainable design start-up company that is developing a
> new approach to solar and wind power. We were honored to exhibit
> our first product GROW, a hybrid energy delivery system inspired by
> ivy, at the Museum of Modern Art in the exhibition Design and the
> Elastic Mind (Feb 19th – May 12th, 2008). The prototype has since
> been acquired by the MoMA for their permanent collection.
