Little Sun Solar Lamp is the brainchild of artist Olafur Eliasson, designed to bring green, affordable light to the world’s 1.1 billion poorest people.
Visitors to the Tate Modern on London’s glittering bankside may remember ‘the Weather Project’, which turned the vast turbine hall into a misty dreamscape dominated by a ginormous yellow sun.
Why do we mention it? Well, the artist behind the Weather Project, Olafur Eliasson has now teamed up with engineer Frederik Ottesen to create Little Sun. Small, portable and powered entirely by the sun this indoor/outdoor solar light has been designed to bring light to children and families in the poorest regions of the world. And we get to help! Because every solar lamp sold here in the UK, funds the effort to distribute them to those areas most in need.
This portable solar lamp is delightfully simple to use. Just leave it in the sun for 5 hours to fully charge the internal battery. This’ll give you over 50 hours of light at its lowest setting, or 4 hours at the very highest. Which is more than enough to read a bedtime story, barbecue in the dark, or provide a little mood lighting around the garden – while you bask in the glow of a good deed done.
Complete with lanyard and accompanying story booklet, this nifty travel lantern is a robust and fun torch for all ages – and it’s pretty awesome for festivals and camping trips too.
