Here at Solight Design, we are passionate about what we do. Be it the products we invent, or the daily lifestyle choices we make, our commitment to sustainability, humanitarian work and design is at the core of everything we do. Our CEO, co-founder, and inventor of Solight products, Alice Min Soo Chun, is no exception. Alice has been a professor in Architecture and Materials Technology at Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, and Parsons School of Design. She has also lectured at Yale, MIT, and Harvard, and was a former Director of the Materials Resource Lab at The New School. After the Haiti earthquake, Alice turned her Columbia University studio into an innovation lab to develop solutions to help Haiti, resulting in the SolarPuff. She was been published in The New York Times, Architectural Record, Dwell, and The Journal of Architectural Education.
In this section of the Solight Design Journal, Alice's Corner, we will post excerpts and highlights of the many design and sustainability articles that Alice has written. These are a great representation of the principles underlying our work, ranging from topics like materiality and their effect on culture to ecocide and the transition to eco-literacy. We hope that these posts will help teach us all about the steps we can take for a more beautiful, sustainable and equitable future!
