Why is it sustainable?
Pine Needle is a sustainable pendant lamp that is handmade with pine needles fallen from Christmas trees.
On average the needles of one single tree are enough to create 12 lampshades!
Pine needles are mixed with reed sourced from local lakes shores (Finland). The result is a biodegradable biomaterial that – after the lamp has reached its end of life – can be reused to make new products or composted.
This approach reflects the principles of circular design in several ways.
To start with, it uses waste as a raw material. Also, the resulting material can be reused over and over again and will never go to landfill as it is compostable.
