The new addition to the Scraplight series comes thanks to seven years of brainstorming. The original Scraplights are made from the company’s signature brown corrugated paper, and are known for giving off a rustic warmth that creates a cozy atmosphere indoors. But with the success of their first line, Graypants sought to design a version that would accommodate interiors needing bright, continuous light, such as office spaces or schools.

The Scraplight White series was designed to be more open and translucent, and to give off a bright, modern glow. The lamps are handmade in Holland through a partnership with a social works program that provides craft-based jobs to locals, engaging the community around Graypants’ Amsterdam headquarters.

Each paper piece that makes up the lights is also made from FSC-Certified paper, sourced from forests that continually replant more trees than harvested. Both the Scraplight White and original series are completely recyclable regardless of shape, and the fixtures and parts can be swapped out if they are ever damaged.

Graypants’ Scraplight White is a sustainable alternative to their original series, perfect for event spaces, offices, or even at home.
