“LITTLE SUN” by OLAFUR ELIASSON and FREDERIK OTTESEN
“Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
it calls me on and on across the universe.”
The Little Sun project, designed by the artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen is an innovative way to get clean, affordable light to the 1.6 billion people worldwide without access to the electrical grid. The idea is to develop an unique social business model that uses the revenue from the higher on-grid sales prices of lamps to invest in the sustainable distribution of lamps in off-grid communities. This Little Sun is able to help create off-grid jobs and support off-grid entrepreneurs, generating local profits. You can get involved in the project by purchasing a Little Sun of your own, spreading the word, or following the project on Facebook and Twitter.
