Senilia Desk Lamp 58
Senilia Desk Lamp provides a soft light source that bounces off surrounding surfaces. But it is more than a light, it is a sculpture. With its slim yet sturdy shape, it adds an elegant and sophisticated touch to any space without taking up too much of your work space.
Senilia is fully biodegradable and compostable, made from 100% natural materials: spent grain, a byproduct of the beer industry, and coffee silverskin, a byproduct of the coffee industry. The primary material is compression molded under high pressure to give it stability and rigidness. A carnauba wax coating is added to protect the surface from moisture. The lampshade and electrical components are then assembled and added by hand.
Available in two natural colors: Tawny (made from spent grain) and Mocha (made from coffee silverskin).

Senilia is a collection of one of a kind lamps made from leftovers from the agri-food industry: spent grain from beer production and coffee silverskin from coffee roasting. Silverskin is the peel that covers and protects the outer layer of the coffee bean. It falls off during the drying process when coffee beans are removed from the fruit, amounting to nearly 7,500 tons of waste per year in Italy alone. Spent grain is the main byproduct of the brewing industry, producing 188,000 tons of waste in Italy yearly.
HighSociety collaborates with Italian roasters and brewing companies to collect post-industrial waste from their factories and transform it into these magnificent pieces of sculptural lighting.Each piece is fully biodegradable and compostable. The manufacturing process itself explores the intersection of handcrafting and industrial techniques, the latter powered by renewable energies.
