Last week at Design Indaba, South Africa, Olafur revealed the design of our newest, sparkling Little Sun solar lamp, Little Sun Diamond, to the world for the first time.
We are very excited to announce that our latest solar gem will be available for you all in a few month’s time (Autumn, 2017).
With its crystalline, faceted lens inspired by nature, and the sparkling ambience of its glow, this new pocket-sized solar lamp, the third in the Little Sun family, is both stylish and versatile.
Our Little Sun Diamond’s minimalistic design and muted colour scheme appeals to design-lovers and the handy stand and lanyard that it comes with means that it can be used for almost anything, no matter where in the world you are: doing homework at night, shining the way to the fields after sunset, or even to cast a magical glow when the family sits down for dinner. The Little Sun Diamond is the perfect pocket light for the stylish adventurer who cares about sustainability. You can wear it with the lanyard during the day in the sun so it charges up, ready to give you sunshine wherever you need it after the sun goes down. Little Sun Diamond has an energising ambience that we hope inspires your creativity.
Because it is so versatile, it is our aim that it is universally appealing to all those that need portable light, whether you live with energy access or not. When you buy a Little Sun Diamond in an area of the world with electricity, you make it possible for Little Sun Diamonds to be made available to people living without electricity at locally affordable prices. In this way, that same, beautiful sparkle of the Diamond will shine in homes all across the globe.
