These Sustainable Lights Are Made of Food Waste + Wood Dust


Oakland-based Model No. is expanding into lighting for the first time, rounding out their offerings which already includes an array of furniture, bins, and small home accessories. Not one to create waste or overage, the brand has designed 13 new products that are all 3D printed on demand at its micro-factory in California. The pieces are made using a sustainable plastic pellet blend consisting of food waste, corn and sugar leftovers, wood dust, and sustainably-sourced, FSC-certified hardwood.

The Amphora Pendant series is inspired by ancient vases of the Mediterranean and, similar to the Eos series, can be arranged as a group or a singular pendant on its own.

The Eos series includes five different table lamps, each with its own unique shape but created with the same translucency and opacity. The lamps can stand on their own as independent fixtures or grouped together as a family as they share similar form, scale, and negative spaces.
