From Waste to Watts
The Coil Collection is a breakthrough in sustainable lighting design and material science. After years of painstaking research and development LightArt created a line of upcycled pendants, made from recycled material and ocean-bound and nearshore waste.
The Coil Collection series embodies LightArt’s expertise and commitment to responsible manufacturing. These fixtures can stand alone as a or be utilized in a cluster for an eye-catching installation.
We're upcycling waste into pendants with a breakthrough new line of fixtures. The Coil Collection is a result of intensive years of research and development, featuring an unexpected look from a product made through additive manufacturing. Coil pendants look and feel like crafted, hand-spun pottery with a smooth matte finish.
Upwards of eight million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans each year. To combat this, LightArt partnered with OceanWorks, the largest global marketplace for recycled plastic materials. OceanWorks with local teams around the world to collect, separate, and redistribute waste out of the ocean and into viable new products.
In Spring of 2022 LightArt introduced Seagrass and Sea Foam, 100% recycled pendants made from ocean-bound and nearshore waste. Learn more about the process of our new Ocean Coil series of pendants, here.
The image above is an example of nearshore plastic, which is a term that describes waste like fishing nets, trawls, and ropes. Our material supplier utilizes relationships with their global community to take the discarded items and process them into a viable material product. The Seagrass pendant is made up entirely from nearshore plastic, which is how it has the vibrant green color.
Ocean-bound plastics are waste found near coastlines, rivers, and waterways. It primarily consists of plastic bags, water bottles and other single use plastics that can easily find their way into the ocean. The Sea Foam pendant is made entirely from this type of material, with no additive coloring, keeping true to the creamy tones of the original material.
