We want to connect the world by sharing the power of the sun in order to promote a sustainable lifestyle. The collaboration with IKEA is a huge opportunity to raise awareness for energy access and the urgent need for global solutions, while at the same time working with world-leading product designers. – says Olafur Eliasson, founder of Little Sun.

The product range is named SAMMANLÄNKAD which means CONNECTED in Swedish, and is inspired by a Little Sun’s motto “We are all #ConnectedByTheSun” (we all share the same sun and its power).

Energy is vital in life today, but still many people have no grid at all or a broken grid. We want to find smart solutions for them as well as for people that have access but want to reduce their energy consumption to adapt to a more sustainable lifestyle. – James Futcher, creative leader at IKEA of Sweden

The collection will launch in 2021.
