Ikea has teamed up with little sun which is a company co-founded by a renowned artist to bring power to people all around the world. The project is named sammanlakad which translates to connected in Swedish. The aim of this project is to make a collection of small products powered by the sun.
The product line will feature functional pieces of furniture like lamps and ceiling lights that contain a removable battery or energy stores which can be charged by solar to be used. These small electronics can be used to charge mobile phones etc. It is a huge opportunity to raise awareness for global problems and the urgent need for global solutions.
