Little Sun is a social business by artist Olafur Eliasson spreading clean, affordable solar energy around the globe. It’s a work of art that works in life.
Launched in 2012 by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen at London’s Tate Modern, Little Sun’s social business brings clean, reliable, affordable energy to the 1.1 billion people in the world living without electricity while raising awareness for energy access and climate action worldwide. Our premium solar products are for everyone. Little Sun solar lamps and phone charges are sold online and in partner stores around the world. Each time you buy a Little Sun, we deliver one to someone living off-the-grid at a much lower, locally affordable price. On the ground, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa, we work with local entrepreneurs to create local jobs and to bring the power of the sun to everyone.
In 2017, Olafur Eliasson launched the Little Sun Foundation, as an extension to the social business. The Foundation brings light to those beyond the reach of our entrepreneurial distribution channels, especially school children, refugees and people affected by natural disaster.
They support these words by giving away a portable solar lamp to people in underdeveloped countries for each lamp that is bought in the countries of the so-called First World.
Don’t miss the chance to contribute to illuminate the present and buy the future of energy. Check their website here!
