This little sun lamp is an attractive, high-quality solar-powered LED lamp developed by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen.

Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun, was a project launched at Tate Modern and continues to be a worldwide project. According to the artist Olafur Eliasson:
'Light is for everyone – it determines what we do and how we do it. This is why Frederik Ottesen and I have developed the solar-powered lamp Little Sun. Little Sun is a small work of art with a large reach. One part of the artwork is the lamp and the activities it enables. The other is the successful distribution of Little Sun in off-grid communities, its journey from production to usage.
As the first partner to join the Little Sun project, Tate exhibited confidence in the power of culture to have a real impact on the world. Tate has believed from the start that holding hands with the sun is holding hands with the future.'
In addition, the Little Sun light is also a fun and functional product - perfect for beaches, BBQs, camping trips and festivals! It is a fun educational tool and great for kids. The light's durable, versatile sun-like design uses a 6 x 6 cm mono-crystalline solar module. When charged for five hours in the sunlight, Little Sun gives five hours of bright LED illumination.
