Inhabitat favorite, Molo, will be unveiling a brand new series of sustainable lamps in just a few weeks at this year’s ICFF in New York City. Founders and designers Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen designed their new LED SoftLight lamps with not only energy-efficiency in mind, but the beautiful lighting fixtures also aim to cut down on waste, featuring pillowy shades constructed from 100% recyclable Tyvek.
The soft luminous pendants are internally lit by LED lights and have shades made from the same white textile as the Urchin SoftLight and SoftWall and SoftBlock installations. The non-woven polyethylene material named Tyvek, is 100% recyclable and made from 5 to 15% recycled content.
The lightweight paper material is UV, tear and water-resistant and comprises hundreds of honeycomb-like forms. The elegant pieces rest on three delicate wooden legs and radiate a low glare light suitable for reading and doing detailed work.
To mark the occasion of this release, Molo will be making available a limited number of cloud floor and table softlights for purchase at ICFF.
