Olafur Eliasson produces cheap solar lamp for developing countries | The Guardian

Olafur Eliasson’s new work, he hopes, will also draw on a community’s desire to harness art for themselves, but this time he is working with an overt social purpose. His latest project, conceived as part of the London 2012 festival, is a solar-powered lamp that he and his engineer partner, Frederik Ottesen, have designed and developed. Plans are already in motion for the lamp to be widely distributed in the developing world, in partnership with NGOs including Plan International.
