A Beautiful Glowing Bike Lane Modeled After Van Gogh's Starry Night


To experience Vincent Van Gogh s Starry Night, there s really only one place you can go: inside a gallery in New York City s Museum of Modern Art. Starting today, you have another option. If you happen to be near Eindhoven in the Netherlands, you can walk or bike down a glowing path modeled after Van Gogh's masterpiece. The one kilometer lane is the work of Daan Roosegaarde, the same designer responsible for the glowing stretch highway we featured last week.

Like the Smart Highway, The Van Gogh-Rooosegaarde bike path (located near where Van Gogh himself lived from 1883-1885) uses a luminescent material that charges during the day and glows at night. These glowing bits look like little pebbles, but they re actually not rocks at all. Using the smart coating material developed with Dutch infrastructure company Heijmans, Roosegaarde was able to create 50,000 fluorescent "rocks" that he then embedded into wet concrete in a swirling, pointillism pattern reminiscent of Starry Night.
