Little Sun is at once an inclusive social business, a global project, and a way of connecting the world through sharing light and energy. Founded in 2012 by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen, Little Sun is invested in delivering clean solar products as well as raising awareness about the importance of sustainable energy for all through special projects and events around the world. The Berlin-based company’s eponymous first product, the Little Sun Original solar LED lamp, was developed to get clean, reliable, affordable light to the 1.2 billion people worldwide without access to electricity living in ‘off-grid’ areas, with a particular focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2016 the second product, Little Sun Charge – a solar phone charger and lamp, was launched. It is being followed in 2017 by the Little Sun Diamond, a sparkling and beautiful smaller solar lamp.
