Shining a Light on Developing Countries


Created for those living in developing countries with limited access to power, the Bottle Pedestal Solar Lamp serves as a low-cost lighting solution with little environmental impact.

The design features a small solar panel on one side and a light source on the other. These components are housed within a biodegradable cork shell. In addition to harnessing the sun’s energy and being at least partially composed of environmentally-friendly materials, it also encourages the reuse of plastic bottles with its functional stand. The metal stand doubles as a bracket that grips onto the neck of a bottle to elevate the light source, instantly transforming it into a desk lamp.

The Bottle Pedestal Solar Lamp is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2018.
