Dutch designer Marjan van Aubel recently created a solar lamp dedicated to supporting "solar democracy." Dubbed 'Sunne,' the new light harvests energy throughout the day to light a space during the night. The device is equipped with photovoltaic cells and an integrated battery and hopes to "normalise solar technology by bringing it inside homes."
"To facilitate a shift in our perception towards solar, it also needs to be more accessible to a larger group of people. People need to be able to familiarise themselves with it and have it in their surroundings. Sunne is a first step to integrating solar energy into our everyday life," commented Marjan van Aubel on her motivations for the project.
