We created Solar Buddies to elevate and extend outdoor events such as food and music festivals. With these lamps, users could enhance and extend their outdoor social gatherings.
Given a project brief that dealt with the somber issues of climate change and population displacement, we wanted to design a product that could demonstrate the potential of an off-grid lighting solution while also maintaining a playful tone.
Our lighting system is comprised of a compact solar charging dock, capable of charging up to 10 lamps within 8 hours. Using a built-in battery, the dock could store power during the day and charge the lamps even when after sundown.
