Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun

Inaugural Project In The Frank Gehry Designed Youngarts Gallery.

Artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen developed the Little Sun solar-powered lamp to get clean, affordable light to the 1.6 billion people in the world without electricity. Little Sun is at once a work of art, a global project, a social business, and a way to connect the world through sharing light. Not only for off-grid areas, Little Sun lamps are popular across the globe. Purchasing Little Suns in areas of the world with electricity makes the lamps available in off-grid areas at reduced, locally affordable prices, where they are providing a clear alternative to unsafe and toxic fuel-based lighting like kerosene lanterns.
