BIODEGRADABLE DESK LAMP

SUSTAINABLE DESK LAMP MADE FROM AN INNOVATIVE COMPOSITE THAT IS FULLY BIODEGRADABLE/COMPOSTABLE

The project

Identity 560 is the first interior product based on advanced bio-composites, which is fully recyclable and/or compostable. This project will demonstrate that high-class design in combination with advanced bio-composites provides an answer to the current challenging circular business concept. The base of the lamp is produced in a combination of silica with a biodegradable bioresin. The arm is based on braided polylactic acid fibres with low and high melting properties and the cap and small parts are made from injection-moulding bio-composites. All components will be recyclable and compostable, avoiding metals.
