marjan van aubel studio introduces ‘sunne’, a self-powered ambient solar light that captures, stores and produces light indoors. made from one long curved strip of aluminum and shaped like the horizon, the light harvests energy from the sun by day and brings sunlight into your home at night.

‘solar technology has come a long way since the blue roof paneling we all know, and is becoming the cheapest source of energy’ the team at marjan van aubel studio shares. ‘through innovative solar design, we can weave energy into buildings and objects to increase their functionality and transform how they look’ they add. the ‘sunne’ modern solar design combines art, sustainability, and technology to create the indoor light of the future.

‘sunne’ is made from one long curved strip of aluminum, 85 cm in length and hangs by the window with the help of two steel wires – no external plug is needed. on its curved surface, the design incorporates solar cells that were developed together with ECN.TNO, one of the most advanced energy research centers in europe. the cells harvest energy during the day and then store this power in an integrated battery, in order to create an ambient light at night. ‘sunne’ has three settings that imitate all the natural moments of the sun; ‘sunne’ rise, ‘sunne’ light and ‘sunne’ set. to switch the light on and off, users can simply touch the top of the light or use the app.

‘I believe in solar democracy, solar energy for everyone, everywhere’ award-winning solar designer marjan van aubel says. seeing every surface as an opportunity to harness the sun’s energy, along with the rest of the ‘sunne’ team, van aubel is dedicated to making self-powering products that are beautiful, well-designed, and fit seamlessly within the home. ‘sunne’ is the first in a range of solar products to come, that will be accessible to a wider range of people, and will help to integrate solar energy into our daily environment.
