Artisolar is geared towards the artistic and playful use of solar energy. Instead of burning fossil fuels, we have been using the life-giving rays of the sun since 1986. In 1985, inspired by the first Tour de Sol, we developed a solar-powered bicycle, which was followed by an amphibian solar-powered mobile, the Basilisk 1.

Originally conceived as a solar-powered sailing boat for use on land, the project became a pure solar-powered boat, because the vehicle roadworthiness inspectorate showed little sympathy for a playful approach to mobility.
