About the Company: The LuminAID light was designed by two design students, Andrea Sreshta and Anna Stork, shortly after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. When thinking about what they could design to make a difference, Andrea and Anna decided to focus on lighting because it had the potential to greatly improve the comfort, safety and survival of disaster victims. Inspired to design a simple, solar-powered lighting product that could be easily distributed in times of emergency, they developed the LuminAID light and founded LuminAID Lab to bring the technology to market.
