Dash Linear light by Graypants

Dezeen Showroom: design studio Graypants has created Dash Linear, an architectural light made from layers of post-consumer recycled cardboard.

Dash Linear was designed to be "high-performing but never boring", providing technical illumination for the workplace in an attractive and sustainable package.

The fixture is handmade in the Graypants studio in Seattle by laser-cutting stacked cardboard into oblong shapes.

The manufacturing process limits material waste and uses a VOC-free adhesive alongside a non-toxic fire retardant.

Graypants founder Seth Grizzle and product development manager Caleb Patterson based the design for the Dash Linear light on Graypants' earlier Scraplight series of spherical pendants, which is also partially made from recycled cardboard.

Dash Linear is available in several lengths and heights as well as one of three finishes – natural, white or blonde.

The light offers up to 1,500 lumens of brightness per linear foot and is dimmable to serve a range of functions.
