We are all #ConnectedByTheSun

In 2012, artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen started the Little Sun project and since then, our global team has been working day by day, solar lamp by solar lamp, to bring the sustainable energy and the awesome power of the sun to everyone. Join our solar mission!
