Sustainable Luxury Nightlight

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.

 

Part of my Sustainable Luxury family of products, this nightlight is fabricated using paper cut-offs from a printing house and stone powder from a stone cutting factory.  The natural irregularities of the material result in a beautiful light-dappled surface that emits just the right amount of illuminance for a bedside nightlight.
