10 million rays of light
CEO Alice Min Soo Chun, recounts the difficulties in raising a child with asthma and how it inspired her to develop a packable, self-inflatable, and floatable solar lantern to reduce pollution with 10 million rays of light throughout the globe.
Design providing dignity
At Solight, they believe that design matters. And that awe and beauty are just as important a utility, whether you live in the Netherlands or in Nigeria. With its sturdy, water-tight sailcloth shell, this bright solar light can weather any storm, while providing up to 12 hours of illumination in three settings.
The SolarPuff™ is the first of its kind: it’s waterproof, fully collapsible, portable and lightweight yet durable even in extreme weather – perfect for travel, outdoor adventures, camping, backyard patio, home decor or emrgency kits. It’s the lightest solar lantern on the market and the high-tech fabric creates a delightful dispersion of light.
Into the light
One light can make an enormous difference to a family living in the dark. Only one SolarPuff™ can give safety, health and economic opportunity to a woman with five children living in poverty for up to five years. And that’s how you can help. If you buy a light, Solight Design will contribute to their non-profit partner Studio-Unite.org, who delivers lights to people that have been through some of the worst traumas of their lives: an earthquake in Nepal, a hurricane in Haiti or Ecuador, or the fleeing from ISIS in the dark of night. And this is where they start to see the light.
