Considering your responsibility towards the global ecosystem, every time you prefer an eco-friendly product over a harmful one, you take one big step to a healthier future for not only yourselves but for the entire mankind. If you are one such responsible citizen looking for some exclusive home accessories that are environment-friendly and have a fresh and stylish spell too, the translucent Giara lamp is the right option to go for. The pendant lamp designed from recycled cork not only lights up your home but also highlights the use of an innovative technology in making it. It’s a clear choice of sustainability over capriciousness all the way.
Chiara Goose Gustinelli of McGiver Creative Lab has designed a unique translucent pendant lamp called Giara that has been made from recycled cork which is a unique environmentally green material, combined with natural resin without any use of adhesive or glue to spoil its natural element. The resultant effect is a quirky and sturdy lighting piece with a single lamp to diffuse your drawing room, dining table or your favorite den with bright illumination with a green halo of sustainability. Available in four varied colors of white, red, green and brown trimmings to suit all types of home or office decor, the lamp truly spells a classic air around it.
The technology that has made this possible actually paves a better responsible future with further applications to a regular greener lifestyle. Cork is one material that has proved to be a big boon for environment and now it’s also used in furniture industry as well as for decoration purposes. Harvested from the cork oak tree, researchers find it to be an ultimate sustainable material as it renews itself every nine years. Furthermore, contrary to harvesting of lumber, cork is extracted from the bark and hence does not harm the treeâs growth in any way. It has been seen that if monitored and extracted scientifically, the same tree can supply cork for few decades to come without affecting the ecosystem any further.
Hence, considering all these factors product designers across the globe are curiously trying to incorporate cork in their elemental design and construction purposes. As consumers and responsible residents of the global community it is our duty to further bolster their efforts with our support and appreciation.
