RECYCLED NATURE COLLECTION is the name of a project born in 2015. The main goal was to find alternative materials to plastic, trying to use natural resources that surround us. The first product that emerged from this mission is LAAB-Light & Leaves, a series of lamps created using the fallen leaves collected during autumn. In fact the word “LAAB” means „leaves“ in the South Tyrolean dialect.
After the leaves fall to the ground naturally they are collected and carefully sorted by colour and type then mixed with a special recipe of natural glues and bio-resins. Thanks to a particular technique of reusable wooden moulds, the lamps can be produced from a single cast without dividing lines. In this way unique pendant lamps with a smooth finish are created.
LAAB incorporates craftsmanship, quality, sustainability and design.
In a society marked by waste, LAAB is an alternative to conventional plastic products. The target are people who not only value the aesthetics of the lamp, but also consciously decide to buy a sustainable product.
The true innovation of the RECYCLED NATURE COLLECTION is the material itself.
In fact LAAB can be used in a variety of areas. The exceptional feature of this new material is to let light shine through very unique textures. Each lamp or surface is an exclusive piece, shades of colours create a very individual, warm and welcoming atmosphere and turn every room into something very special.
The products of the RECYCLED NATURE COLLECTION are entirely handmade.
COLOR & LIGHT
The material has particular compositions and light transparencies. The color depends on the leaves used. However, it´s not possible to determine precisely how the light will shine through, because the distribution of the leaves is difficult to control. This will make each lamp, surface or panel unique. Customers can choose the type or a certain color of the leaves (limited to availability at time of order).
Also the packaging is sustainable and each lampshade model has its own custom made cardboard box with internal protection.
For cleaning only wipe with a dry cloth and do not use chemical substances.
Each lamp is assembled with a textile cable of approx. 1,70m length. The lamps are supplied with a 7W LED bulb included.
