KNIXHULT

Pendant lamp by IKEA

Why is it sustainable?

The KNIXHULT lampshade is made entirely out of bamboo, a material made sustainable by its fast growth rate and its ability to thrive without needing pesticides, fertilisers or herbicides.
But this lamp goes one step further in its sustainable value. For previous bamboo lampshades, IKEA had always specified a homogeneous light colour, but this caused darker-coloured bamboo to be discarded at the factory. KNIXHULT instead allows for greater colour variation and – as a consequence – wastes less raw material.
