Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun Lamp
Developed by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen.
1.6 billion people in the world currently have no access to electricity. Artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen developed the Little Sun solar-powered lamp and founded the company LittleSun GmbH to make clean, affordable light available to everyone. Little Sunís attractive and highly functional design has made the lamp popular across the globe. The Little Sun project connects people through the power of light.
About the Little Sun Solar-Powered Lamp

Comes in the shape of a hand-sized sun
Attractive and highly functional
High-quality lamp guaranteed for at least 3 years
Safe, sustainable light
Users can wear the Little Sun lamp as a pendant, carry it as a hand-held lantern, fix it as a table lamp, hang it on a wall, or attach it to a bike.
A Work of art that Works in Life
Little Sun enhances the lives of people in off-grid communities by:
enabling longer working hours and greater productivity
providing light for children to study in the evening
supplying light for families to cook together at night
allowing people to socialize after dark
improving workplace safety
replacing unsafe and costly kerosene lamps as a light source
saving users 90% of what they would spend on kerosene lighting over a 3-year period
Little Sun's Social Business Model
Little Sun is a social business that follows the principle of trade, not aid. Itís not just about delivering light to peopleóit matters how it gets there. We address the need for light in a sustainable way that benefits off-grid areas of the world.
produces and distributes light worldwide through a project-based, self-funded system
establishes sustainable trade routes and creates off-grid jobs
supplies off-grid small businesses with Little Sun lamps at low prices
provides off-grid retailers with the support they need to profit
raises funds through Little Sun projects to open off-grid Little Sun shops
All funds generated by Little Sun are used to drive the project. Little Sun aims to spread light, safe energy, and profits everywhere.
Little Sun has two price sets: one for users living in areas within the electrical grid ($25), and reduced prices for those living in off-grid areas (approximately half price). This means that when you buy a Little Sun at the regular price, you make it possible for Little Suns to be available in off-grid areas at locally affordable prices.
