Under the bell
Why is it sustainable?
Under the Bell is a lampshade made of felt derived from recycled PET bottles (up to 80% recycled fibres).
Making felt from plastic bottles is a fascinating process. First, bottles are chopped into tiny flakes and melted. The resulting paste is blown in the form of fibres, that are used to make felt sheets. Finally, the sheets are heated and pressed into a mould for shaping.
