The environmentally-friendly Highlight Tobacco Pendant Lamp by High Society uses innovative and sustainable techniques to combine leftover tobacco into a beautiful conical shade. Elegant yet natural, the Highlight suspension light combines an ecological ideal within a beautiful design. Leftover tobacco leaves and stalks are collected from additive-free Italian suppliers in the Venetian region, which are then compression molded under high pressure with a biodegradable binder to produce a cymbal-shaped shade. Smooth to the touch whilst retaining the patterning of the tobacco material, Highlight is then sealed with a natural carnauba wax coating to protect the surface from moisture. The Highlight pendant is available in 2 sizes, and can be installed in a row of matching size shades, in a cluster of mixed sizes, or on its own to add a natural focal point to a space. Highlight provides a direct light whilst the natural material brings 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 tobacco...
The 10th largest world producer of tobacco, in 2018 Italy produced around 58,800 tons of leaves, and 28% came from the Veneto region. High Society collect the waste from Italian cultivators from the Venetian region who grow tobacco without additives. Tobacco leaves and stalks are mixed with a biodegradable binding and pressed to give birth to the sustainable Highlight pendant lamp.
