This month our Marker Monthly features Scraplights, a stylish range of designer lighting made out of recycled cardboard boxes.
Scraplights are hand-crafted from rings of laser-cut cardboard which are layered and glued together. Light gently filters through the cardboard’s corrugations to create elegant lighting with warmth and character.
All lighting in the Classic Scraplights range is made using recycled cardboard – right down to the off-cuts that are used for packaging.
Scraplights were conceived by Graypants, a Seattle/Amsterdam-based creative team that engages in design and architecture projects across the globe.
The intricate lampshades are handmade in the Netherlands where Graypants has partnered with a social works program to provide craft-based careers to the local community.
Classic Scraplights can be seen around the world in high end restaurants, offices, and homes.
Recently launched is the new Scraplights White series which is made from FSC-certified paper, produced from forests that replant more trees than they harvest. This cool, crisp update provides the perfect complement to the rustic charms of the Classic Scraplights.
We think Scraplights is a great example of sustainable design from a creative company that does not compromise on style. To explore the full Scraplights range and other sustainable design projects, visit the Graypants website.
