A set of plant-based suspended lamps, produced using by-products found in the agricultural industry. The project was recently selected to participate at London Design Fair 2019 as part of the Material of the Year exhibition, which focuses on biomaterials and agricultural waste.
As if converting waste into elegant lampshades was not poetic enough, High Society moves one step up the ladder of redemption, transforming human vices into pure bright light: the 3 pieces in the Highlight collection are made of hemp plants, tobacco and wine production leftovers.
All the leftovers used as raw materials are collected from local productions, chopped to obtain powder and compression-moulded by adding a bio-based binder using a low-temperature pressing machine, which involves renewable resources and doesn’t affect the environment. Finally, the pendants are finished applying a natural wax coating to protect their surface from moisture.
