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