Highlight Tobacco Triangle Pendant Light
Tradition meets material innovation to create an elegant and environmentally friendly pendant lamp. Highlight Tobacco is made out of tobacco leftovers that are compression molded and then given a natural wax finishing. Its smooth surface uncovers the natural pattern of the material structure. It provides a warm and directed light that suits any room at home or in commercial spaces.
The material is compression molded under high pressure, giving it stability and rigidness. The lamp shade and the other electrical components are assembled by hand. The lamp shade is a mixture of industrial tobacco leftovers and a biodegradable binder. A carnauba wax coating protects the surface from moisture.
