You Are My Sunshine
When artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen learned that 1.1 billion people worldwide live without electricity, they teamed up and created the Little Sun Solar Lamp to help impoverished communities across the world gain access to light. By selling the Little Suns, the makers are able to help send their solar lamps to villages without affordable electricity. Palm-sized and portable, the lamp brightens any space, from rooms to tents to gardens, and the nifty dimmer helps create just the right mood. Just five hours of daylight charging produces 50 hours of light.
