Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun / Venice Architecture Biennale 2012

At the Venice Architecture Biennial 2012, the artist Olafur Eliasson showed his “Little Sun” solar lamp, that is also part of an installation presented in the main exhibition “Common Ground”. For the installation, Olafur Eliasson attached two Little Sun lamps to a fan. When the fan is on, the individual lights create a continuous ring of light.

The Little Sun lamp is a work of art / product of LittleSun GmbH, a company founded by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen. LittleSun aims to make sustainable light available anywhere. In this video the Managing Director of LittleSun, Felix Hallwachs, tells us more about the little solar lamp.
