Yeti Solar, LLC (TM) is a pioneer in the field of indoor solar lighting and super high efficiency lighting. CEO Rustom Meyer first became interested in solar energy while researching improved solar box cooker designs as an undergraduate at Cornell University. He graduated Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science Cum Laude, and a Masters of Engineering in Biological and Environmental Engineering, also from Cornell. He holds a Professional Engineer's license in Environmental Engineering. Rustom has been researching, designing, prototyping, and directing manufacture of high efficiency, well designed indoor solar lighting and LED systems since 2009. His driving passion is to make these systems so affordable, adaptable, reliable, and user friendly that solar lighting becomes the obvious choice for everyone.
Jon Meyer is a third generation designer, artist, and woodworker. He graduated from the University of Vermont with a BS in Engineering and design, and has graduate degrees in art (MFA Rutgers) and design (MID Pratt Institute - product design, interior architecture). He has also lectured in Europe, China, India, and across the US on contemporary design, and his work appears in the collections of 16 museums globally. His lamp designs are inspired by the beauty of the interplay of light with veneers of northern woods such as birch, cherry, oak and ash. These allow light to show the color, structure, grain, and texture of these species. Jon Meyer's veneer lamps were recently shown at the US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon.
