Today, solar is science – But why can’t energy be beautiful too?

Experience Sunne

The Sunne Experience will be an immersive installation that will draw you closer to the the sun.

The installation will consist of several Sunne lights that will move through the different cycles during the day; Sunne Rise, Sunne Light, and Sunne Set. You will immerse yourself through this surrounded by a soundscape with sounds of the Sun. The experience you will feel is the extension of Sunset; all powered by the sun. 

About Sunne

Sunne is a self-powered solar light that captures stores and produces light indoors. By day, it harvests energy from the sun while it hangs by your window; by night, it brings sunlight into your home. 

Hang Sunne in front of your window and it will naturally harvest energy from the sun and store it in its integrated battery. As the evening gets darker, Sunne’s light will start to glow. The lamp has three settings that imitate all the natural moments of the sun; Sunne Rise, Sunne Set, and Sunne Light.

The Sunne light is made from one long curved strip of aluminum. It’s shaped like the horizon, the curve providing a larger surface area that allows for maximum solar cells.

The solar side of Sunne contains solar cells that harvest energy during the day and then store this power in an integrated battery. To switch Sunne on and off, simply touch the top of the light or use the app.
