The Jute Light is an ambient lamp designed by Atelier LVDW. Preceding the design of the Jute Light is a material research into the possibilities of the use of jute lint, an industrial waste stream from the production of Forbo linoleum. Numerous experiments led to the creation of 'jute ceramics', a sturdy material in which jute lint is mixed with porcelain plaster.
The lamp comes with a cotton cord, E14 fitting and LED light source.
Free shipping (within the Netherlands) from 75 euros.
The Jute Light is made of 50% jute fibres and 50% porcelain plaster. The combination of jute and plaster ensures that both materials reinforce each other. The jute fibre acts as reinforcement in the plaster and at the same time creates a special and unique pattern. The strength and beauty of the material is emphasized in the minimalist design of the hanging lamp.
The jute fibres used, in the form of a kind of fluff, come from Forbo's flooring factory. This natural fibre is the only waste material that comes from the production of Forbo's linoleum. Working with this waste material makes the linoleum a zero-waste product. Gypsum, like glass, is endlessly recyclable and after processing can be widely used. Before the two materials are mixed, the fibres are preferably given a natural colouring, such as indigo, turmeric or red ochre.
