LightArt Transforms its Waste into Pendant Lighting Coil Collection Naturals

LightArt Transforms

Inspired by the look of ceramic pottery, award-winning lighting studio LightArt recently launched a new addition to their Coil Collection. A line of lighting fixtures crafted entirely from upcycled waste, LightArt’s Coil Collection Naturals is an ode to nature’s colour scape with calming Earthy colours, new shapes and sizes, efficient lighting performance.

Borrowing the design from LightArt’s original Coil Collection, the Coil Collection Naturals shares the same hand-spun, ceramic look. Sourcing waste from the company itself, the collection is a byproduct of years of meticulous internal research and development which brought together material science and design to produce 3D printed lighting fixtures.

The Original Collection

Revolving around the idea of making recycled content look good, LightArt’s team aimed to create a material that would look unique, custom, and unlike previously seen upcycled materials. Designed out of internal waste material, the original pendant collection features distinct matte white and black fixtures with textured finishes. Focusing on geometry and curves, LightArt’s team aimed to retain the classic pendant shape for the collection.

Exploring Coil Collection Naturals

Working closely with the engineering division of parent company 3form, the pendants are made from internal waste material and highlight LightArt’s innovative development process. The waste material is pelletised. Before introducing pigment and a matting agent to achieve its final form, the material is sorted by colour with the help of new technology.

The canopy of the lamp, which is coated with TGIC-free powder, is ascended from the ceiling with the help of infinitely adjustable stainless steel or black oxide coated cable with nickel plated or black oxide coat. Its beam is spread from 25 degree spot to 65 degree wide with optics that are easily changed on field. It offers an optimized cut-off to the light source for glare control and visual comfort. Suitable for dry or damp locations, the Coil Pendant collection is ideal for indoor use only.

LightArt strives to build all fixtures to the DECLARE label standards with red list free ingredients. Available in three timely, grounding colours that evoke a sense of calm and comfort – Red Clay, Limestone and Granite Gray – these pendants find inspiration through natural qualities which are found in the surrounding environment. Additionally, these pendants will be available in four new shapes—looking to pottery, geometry and soft curves for its newest inspiration. “The difference is that we’re making recycled content look good, maybe even better than the original product. The magic is in elevating repurposed materials beyond their starting point into viable lighting that excites people,” adds Ryan Smith, Founder, LightArt.
