Sunne: Solar designer creates solar light that evokes sunrise, sunlight, and sunset

Solar designer Marjan van Aubel has created a solar-powered lamp, Sunne, that recreates the different stages of the sun, from sunrise to sunset.

The solar-powered lamp – which has an anodised aluminium frame and is designed to be hung in front of windows – captures sunlight during the day and stores the energy in an integrated battery to brighten up the home at night.

Sunne has three light settings that imitate the colours of the sky: Sunne Rise, Sunne Light and Sunne Set. The light turns itself on automatically at dusk.

The lamp is the first in a range of solar-powered products for the home that the Dutch designer, Marjan van Aubel is developing.
