Little Sun

Social Business

Little Sun was founded in 2012 by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Otteson to provide clean, affordable solar energy to communities without access to electricity. Simultaneously a line of solar products and a work of art, this global project raises awareness of the need for equal access to energy and light. As a social business, Little Sun encourages sustainable development through sales of its solar-powered lamps and chargers.
