    About The Work

    The power of the sun in the palm of your hand.

    The iconic high-quality portable solar lamp is the perfect introduction to personal solar-powered light – designed by artist Olafur Eliasson it’s great for camping, festivals, at the beach, or for brightening your home, garden, or balcony.

    Kids love the lamp – as a nightlight or for playtime – which makes it easy to teach them about sustainable living.

    Featuring a dimmer, you can easily adjust the brightness of the lamp to what you need. 5 hours of charging in the sun produce more than 50 hours of light at the dimmest setting or 4 hours at the brightest setting.


    The power of your purchase

    When you buy Little Sun products, you make solar energy available to communities without electricity at a locally affordable price. For every Little Sun sold, one goes to our partners in rural Africa, where we train local sales agents and bring solar energy to those who need it most.
