Lesun is a flat-pack cardboard solar lamp. The lamp is inexpensive to produce and distribute and simple to assemble. It is user-friendly and can be changed or adapted based on user needs and desires. The cardboard is fully recyclable or replaceable.
Lesun was designed by Fangxin Cao, an MA Product Design student at the Edinburgh College of Art at the University of Edinburgh, in partnership with the staff of Gearbox, a makerspace supporting creative and local manufacturing in Nairobi, Kenya.
