Designed by Ockert van Heerden and John Bexley, the jars features a solar panel on the lid which powers led lights inside.
It has been chosen as one of the 10 most beautiful objects produced in South Africa by a panel of design journalists and cultural commentators.
It’s part of an initiative by the Design Indaba organisers. In addition to the Solar jars, an eclectic mix of items were also chosen. These include a museum building in Pretoria, a necklace, a paper sculpture, a dress featuring fish scales, a couch, planters, a hand stitched travel journal, hand made ring and a mural.
The Design Indaba people want the public to vote on their favourite object (and the sunshine jar gets our vote), so please go to www.designindaba.com and follow the instructions.
