Sustainable Luxury Tabletop Objects

Luxury inherently has a connotation of wastefulness.  From enormous gas-guzzling cars to coats made of rare furs and leathers, the concept of luxury is often synonymous with careless and destructive practices.  Sustainable Luxury was an attempt to subvert this societally ingrained association by creating products using industrial waste as a source material.

 

In one branch of this product family are lampshades and tabletop objects, made of stone powder from a stone cutting factory and paper cut-offs from a printing house.  The vibrant colors occur naturally because of the paper dyes, and the stone powder lends structural integrity and a gorgeous mottled texture to the pieces.
