Giving Light

Artist Olafur Eliasson is known for his massive installations, but his new project fits in the palm of your hand. Little Sun is a small, solar-powered lantern, designed to bring light to small, rural African communities living off the grid. In collaboration with Frederik Ottesen and part of the world economic forum, the lamp will be widely distributed, beginning in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia. Little Sun will also be for sale at the Tate in London, where the lamps will also be on view.
