Though it has been adored by art enthusiasts already, the Olafur Eliasson 'Little Sun' piece is getting its own exhibition at London's Tate Modern.

The art piece, which was created with the help of engineer Frederik Ottesen, is a small, but powerful lamp that makes a strong statement about sustainability. To put the piece to good use, visitors of the London Tate can attend 'Blackouts,' where they can use the lamps to see the famed pieces in the museum. Surely a great accomplishment for the creators of the lamps, this opportunity will further the popularity of the functional art piece and increase the amount of coverage these well-intentioned illuminators receive.

Clever, functional and offering an interactive way to experience art, the Olafur Eliasson Little Sun is a name-making creation.
