At Milan Design Week 2010, April 14 - 19 at Superstudio Piú, Swedish lighting company Wästberg will launch a paper task light made in DuraPulp.
DuraPulp is made from 100 percent renewable fibres and is fully biodegradable. The lamp has been developed in close collaboration with Swedish forestry industry company Södra and Swedish architects and designers Claesson Koivisto Rune.
“This high-tech LED task light has its entire structure made of bio-degradable paper. It is built from sandwiched paper sheets of DuraPulp, a mix of paper pulp and starch polymer.
For being paper, it is very strong and durable. But the folded geometry of the lamp also makes for rigidity, and is not just for sculptural effect.
The lamp structure is compostable and uses an absolute minimum of material. The custom-designed, state-of-the-art LED solution provides the most electricity conserving, quality light possible.
And the directed light itself puts the light where you need it without spill. We dare anyone to manufacture a more ecological electric lamp.” / Claesson Koivisto Rune
