High Profile

MVRDV and Delta Light have produced a series inspired by the beauty in elements normally discarded as waste.

The High Profile series is a range of luminaires inspired by a residual product: leftover aluminium profiles.

MVRDV introduced the idea to develop a new design with Delta Light's waste material, instead of inventing a completely new product. The name stems from profile lighting as a key part of architecture which often produces offcuts as a residual product – these scrap elements became the starting point of the design.

The resultant design looks critically at the manufacturing process, finding not only opportunity but also beauty in elements that are normally discarded as waste.

This project has been shortlisted in the lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
