bottled sunshine / the consol solar jar

South Africans have always been innovative people.

We pioneers the Kreepy-Krawly. We invented the idea of traffic robots.

And now, we’ve managed to bottle light….

And all credit goes to Ockert van Heerden and John Bexley who designed this brilliant item for Consol Glass.

Safely housed in our beautiful 1-litre Consol Classic preserve jar, which provides a practical and attractive casing for the functional product, this alternative light source is literally bottled sunshine. Solar powered LED lights are powered by sunlight which is harnessed through solar panelling fitted on the lid. This Consol design innovation is a true measure of “form meets function”.

The unique jar design went on to receive the Special Recognition Award at the 2011 Institute of Packaging SA Gold Pack Awards.
