BRIGHT Products is a Norwegian company with a mission to turn the world on through smart, simple and sustainable power solutions. Our vision is A world where people see new possibilities, and this vision is deeply embedded in our product development and business strategy.
Our first product, The SunBell Lamp and mobile charger was developed by K8 Industrial Design based on market insight from Lighting Africa and several other reports addressing consumer and small business needs in the Off Grid market. It was developed to replace the weak and polluting kerosene lamps in Africa, Asia and Latin America - but is just as useful for campers and hikers in the rest of the world.
In 2010 the product was awarded with The International Design Award in Los Angeles. In 2011 Bright won the "Common Pitch", an international competition in Social Entrepreneurship in Colorado, USA. The SunBell has also won "The Off Grid Expert Award" (Germany 2013), "The IDZ Usability Award" (Germany 2014). The smaller SunTurtle Solar lamp won the "RedDot Design Award" in 2014.
BRIGHT launched the SunBell and SunTurtle lamps in the market in May 2014. By the end of the first year, sales had passed 220.000 units to some 20 different countries. Currently the biggest "customer" is the UN Refugee Agency, to whom we have delivered some 190.000 units with our partner W.Giertsen Energy Solutions.
