About This File

Artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen developed Little Sun Original to bring clean, affordable light to the 1.1 billion people worldwide living without electricity in ‘off-grid’ areas.

I have two of these lamps that my children often use at night to read with. Unfortunately, after a slightly too enthusiastic game, one of the lamps cases got damaged.

The great design of these lamps means its very easy to take apart and looking at the structure, I decided to utilise my 3D modelling skills and recreate the design suitable for 3D printing. I did email Little Sun marketing dept with the hope of getting the digital 3D files, but a very nice response declined my request.

A couple of iterations later and the first fully functional version came off my printer. I reused the electronics, lens and on/off cover. Fitted all to my 3D printable version and now my daughter has a very fetching green Little Sun!
