Gallery: NAUTILUS Eco-Friendly Flat-Pack Hanging Lamp


This eco-chic hanging lamp is more than an expression of good taste. Aptly named the Nautilus, the design recently emerged from the hands of Rebecca Asquith of the sustainability-driven New Zealand outlet Unless. This whimsical fixture illuminates interiors with style and an awareness of how good design can coexist with principles of good environmental stewardship.

Eco-minded designers at Unless are linked through a shared concern for the environment and a commitment to promoting sustainable design. The Nautilus emanates this intent by starting with GECA (Good Environment Choice Australia) certified hoop pine plywood. More diligence from the designer ensures that energy and resource consumption are minimal – the collapsible components come as a kit set for reduced packaging and efficient transportability.

Unless stands for sustainably not only in product design but also in operations. The showroom and design studios run on principles of energy efficiency, waste reduction, recycling, composting and supporting local green initiatives through community efforts. While their designs are inspiring, their inspiration is simple…

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

    […] Jeg vet ikke om inspirasjonskilden er Elisabeths mange bloggpostinger om kule interørting, eller kanskje inntrykk etter Jørn Hurums morsomme forelesning om fiskeøgler og deres favorittmat under Gyldendaldagene igår, men uansett falt jeg pladask for denne nautilus-inspirerte lampa fra Unless • Lighting.
