The Highlight Hemp environmentally-friendly pendant light by High Society combines an admirable ethos within a beautiful design. Elegant yet natural, the Highlight suspension lamp uses innovative and sustainable methods to turn leftover industrial hemp (with a little help from a biodegradable binder) into a beautiful conical shade. Compression molded under high pressure, the resulting cymbal-shaped shade is smooth to the touch yet retains the distinct and individual patterning of the material. Highlight is finally sealed with a natural carnauba wax coating to protect the surface from moisture. Available in 2 sizes, the Highlight pendant can be installed singularly, in a row of the same size or in a cluster of mixed sizes to add a natural focal point to a space. Providing a direct light, the natural material of the shade adds a warmth to the reflected glow.
Compatible with retrofit LED bulbs, not included. An E27 LED globe is recommended, a globe 45 4.3W for the smaller Highlight and a globe 60 7W for the medium size. Supplied with a 2 metre black cotton cord and matching hemp ceiling canopy.
The innovative Highlight pendant is available made from natural hemp, tobacco or wine - see below.
A bit about hemp...
Hemp is not a drug, despite confusion around the plant. Whilst hemp may belong to the Cannabis family its primary use is in industry, from body care to construction. Hemp is an environmentally responsible material that can reduce carbon dioxide while producing fresh oxygen. Hemp was cultivated in South Tyrol, Italy, until the beginning of the 20th century, when it stopped. High Society now grow Carmagnola hemp at 1350 metres above sea level in compliance with Italian law, and without using pesticides or water. Pursuing the philosophy of naturalness and environmental friendliness, the leftovers are turned into sustainable pendant lights. High Society use all the parts of the plant = no waste.
