Designers Team Up to Create Cool Lighting Pieces That Also Benefit a Great Cause
New York City-based nonprofit Kids of Kathmandu, whose ongoing mission is to support 49 Nepalese orphan children, has just launched the enLIGHTen Project. Seventeen renowned lighting designers from all over the world (including Lindsey Adelman, David Weeks, Jason Miller, David Trubridge, and Rich Brilliant Willing) will design a piece of unique statement lighting that will be auctioned to fund solar panels for the children. The solar electricity will give the children access to lighting, clean water, refrigeration, computers, and basic sanitary improvements, giving them a chance at an education and a better life. If you're looking for a truly unique piece of lighting, you should act fast because bids are already being placed! The auction will run until May 17.
