Light for everyone

Artificial waterfalls, colorful rivers, scent tunnels, yellow mist, a huge sun—Olafur Eliasson’s works captivate the senses, challenge notions of art and nature, and open up new spaces and ideas in between. In conjunction with his exhibition “Life” at the Fondation Beyeler, you will find in our Shop a comprehensive range of fascinatingproducts on themes that always accompany Eliasson’s work: landscape & architecture, climate & ecology, plants & nature, science & theory.

The Little Sun solar-powered lamp was developed by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen to get clean, reliable, affordable light to the 1.6 billion people worldwide without access to the  electrical grid. Popular across the globe, Little Sun is a beautiful light in the shape of a hand-sized sun. Five hours of charging creates a full evening of Little Sun light. When you purchase a Little Sun in areas of the world with electricity, you make it possible for Little Suns to be sold in off-grid communities at locally affordable prices.
