New York, NY – In May 2015, Solight Design raised $466,940 on Kickstarter for SolarPuff, a small solar lantern that took the world by storm. Now the team is excited to announce the launch of their second Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new solar light, TwiLight, and the Merlin series.
TwiLight is a smaller version of the SolarPuff that packs flat and lights up with bright red and white LEDs. The Merlin series uses the same sailcloth as the original SolarPuff, with six individual or rotating colors (red, blue, green, purple, yellow, and white)! The campaign has become instantly popular, reaching its $25,000 goal in just one day and going on to raise over $40,000 with weeks left until the campaign closes.
“We’re back with additions to our Solight Design line of products: the smallest and cutest little solar lantern called the Twilight and an explosion of color with our Merlin series!” said Alice Chun, co-founder of Solight Design, “We’ve taken our patented flat pack solar lantern with easy pop open technology and expanded our line to include tons of color. Now our solar lights are beautifully designed, functional and colorful!”
Like all of Solight Design’s products, the fabric used for TwiLight and the Merlin series is non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and recyclable. Solight Design’s solar flat pack lights are waterproof too, which makes them great for the home, gardens, pools, boating, camping, fishing, and hiking. Since they are so lightweight, they are also the most ideal lanterns for emergency and disaster relief.
Since their last Kickstarter campaign, the creators have impacted over 100,000 people by delivering thousands of lights to Haiti, Nepal, Ghana, Ecuador, Senegal, Liberia, Malawi and the Syrian Refugee camps in Greece.
“Our lanterns distinguish themselves from other solar lanterns because of their modern flat pack pop-open designs. The purpose is our belief in good design for all, in both first world and third world countries,” explains co-founder, Stacy Kelly, “Twilight looks stunning traversing poolside to camp side to refugee and disaster relief. Our product is engineered to flatten and then pop open into a clean, beautiful, modern cube lamp which is a critical distinction for transforming poverty into dignity.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one new TwiLight for $12, a two-pack of TwiLights or get one and give one to a Syrian Refugee child in Greece for $25, and more. Backers can also pledge $35 for a Merlin SolarPuff or $60 to get three TwiLights and give two to victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.
