Breathtakingthat''s what came to mind when we saw the ruins of an old Nevada mine at sunset. The walls had been constructed of wine bottles and mud. All those old bottles arranged so perfectly and capturing the sunlight, what better inspiration for a lighting family? We mimicked the bottle ends with recycled steel circles of varying sizes filled with recycled glass discs. Rarely before has a design based in "old" seemed so powerfully new.
Seventy percent recycled steel – zero percent recycled styles. At Varaluz, company designers believe lighting – from modern lights, to green lighting to contemporary lighting – should not only be interesting, but sustainable. Most Varaluz lighting fixtures use steel that has 70% or greater recycled content, and glass that is 100% recycled. Varaluz Lighting uses many reclaimed materials in the glass and shades used on their modern lights, green lighting and contemporary lighting designs. As the old saying goes, “One person’s trash is another’s treasure.” Varaluz just takes it to beautiful extremes.
