Design that Matters
See Better to
Behar is one of the country's top industrial designers. And for him, design is more than just a job, it's a lifestyle. He designed the offices of his San Francisco company, Fuseproject, and they stand as a sort of museum to all he's made.

About 600 million people in sub-Saharan Africa live without access to electricity. The majority of those – approximately 80% – live in rural areas where there is no grid-electricity, and expansion is largely financially and logistically infeasible. Our goal is to enable access to off-grid lighting and energy products for 250 million more people across sub-Saharan Africa by 2030, by catalyzing the market.

We raise public awareness and promote collective action from consumers to push for change in the industry.
