Jute Light

The Jute Light is an ambient lamp designed by Atelier LVDW. Prior to the design of the Jute Light lies a materials research into the possibilities of using jute fluff, an industrial residual waste stream resulting from the production of Forbo linoleum. Through numerous experiments, the material "jute ceramic" was created: a sturdy material in which the jute fluff is mixed with porcelain plaster.

The lamp comes with a cotton cord, E14 fitting and LED light source.

Description

The Jute Light is made of 50% jute fibers and 50% porcelain plaster. The combination of jute with plaster ensures that both materials reinforce each other. In fact, the jute fiber acts as reinforcement in the plaster while creating a special and unique pattern. The strength and beauty of the material is highlighted in the minimalist design of the pendant lamp.

The jute fibers used, shaped like lint, come from Forbo's flooring factory. This natural fiber is the only waste material resulting from the production of Forbo's linoleum. By working with this waste material, the linoleum becomes a zero-waste product. Gypsum, like glass, is endlessly recyclable and can be used widely after processing. Before the two materials are mixed together, the fibers are preferably given a natural color bath, such as indigo, turmeric or red ochre.
