New lamps for Tivoli Gardens to be designed by Olafur Eliasson and Little Sun

Tivoli Gardens, the historic amusement park in central Copenhagen, is to collaborate with acclaimed Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and his Little Sun project.

In 2017, a new signature lamp, designed by Eliasson and powered by sustainable energy, will shine at Tivoli Gardens and a special Tivoli Little Sun lamp will be available in the shop for visitors to take home.

Olafur Eliasson is known for his diverse artworks and large-scale installations, which often employ light, fog, and other ephemeral materials.

Among Eliasson’s permanent artistic landmarks in Denmark are Your rainbow panorama, a 150-metre circular, coloured-glass walkway situated atop ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, and, in Copenhagen, the Opera house chandeliers and Cirkelbroen (The circle bridge).

Little Sun is a social business and global project founded by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen to bring clean, reliable, affordable energy to the 1.1 billion people in the world living in off-grid areas without electricity.

The project’s first product, the Little Sun solar LED lamp, was launched in 2012 and is sold all over the world, and the second product, Little Sun Charge, a solar phone charger, has just been launched worldwide.

Tivoli Gardens’ CEO Lars Liebst said: “Olafur Eliasson is an artist whose designs connect people and create a sense of wonder. These are also two of the secrets behind Tivoli's success and important parts of our DNA. I am convinced that by joining forces Tivoli and Eliasson will be able to reach new standards for amusement park design as well as sustainability and enhance the Tivoli experience to the great benefit of our visitors.”

Olafur Eliasson added: “Throughout its history Tivoli has used light to create a magical atmosphere, where dreams and reality blend. It is a glowing oasis at the heart of Copenhagen, a space where we can let go, share thrills and enjoyment, be playful. But it is also a space that appeals to people’s creativity and dreams.

“Little Sun’s new lamp for the garden, together with the special Tivoli Little Sun lamp, will enhance the feeling that light is not only functional, but it also has a powerful emotional quality. And to use sustainable energy and solar technology is to show the way to a sustainable future.“
