ABOUT THE BRAND
What started as a humble idea to create a small, portable solar lamp for people without electricity in Ethiopia is now a global project that has changed over two million lives through the awesome power of the sun.
Little Sun Diamond
Robust as it is beautiful, Little Sun Diamond is the third member of the family. It’s pocketsized, featherweight and radiates a sparkling glow.
Designed by artist Olafur Eliasson and featuring a faceted lens inspired by nature, it’s the best friend for urban explorers and nature lovers alike.
The incorporated stand makes it a great reading lamp. Exchange the stand for the lanyard and take it with you and it becomes a little piece of sunshine wherever you go!
5 hours of charging in the sun gives you 5 hours of bright light, fading to long-lasting soft light.
