Why is it sustainable?
Palm is a floor lamp made of a plant-based polymer derived from sugar crops.
These proprietary polymers are produced from corn, sugarcane and sugar beets. Fermented sugar produces lactic acid, which is dehydrated, turned into polylactic acids (PLAs) and then mixed with additives to create Gantri Plant Polymers.
When compared to petroleum-based plastics, these polymers produces 75% less CO2 (per kilo of material) and no carcinogens are released during production. Additionally, Gantri only works with suppliers that apply non-GMO and sustainable farming practices, ensuring that the crop is not overexploited.
Gantri products are made to order, thus avoiding the costs and impacts of overproduction. Products are 3D printed, then hand-finished and assembled.
