If you’re on Pinterest, you know the idea of the cardboard lamp is not new. But new is the way Graypants processed the material to their unmistakable “Scraplights”.
That’s why Graypants was an interesting label we saw at the Light+Building fair.
It is excellently cut and glued and also allows great diameters. Founded in 2008 by Seth Grizzle and Jon Junker in Seattle, the lamps get designed there and then produced in the Netherlands. The high-quality and precise processing lets the light shimmer through the material which gives the lamps a very special flair.
At the lighting fair the design duo showed the new lamps in a completely white cardboard style – “Scraplights white”.
A great idea and very good implementation, because the lights had no visible discolored edges, as one might expect, but looked brilliant in their noble white. In white, the lamps have a very modern touch which we liked right away. Graypants produce their designs in many different sizes and shapes.
The “Kerflights” series is made of powder-coated metal. They don’t only give off the light downwards but also to the surrounding area, creating great light effects on walls, ceilings and floors. The lighting designs in large diameters are particularly beautiful or in combination of different sizes of a model, as we saw it at their booth at the Light & Building.
Also the light installation “Hall of Moa’s” with many small individual pendants of the “Murmurations” really impressed us. Graypants offers this as a “Customized Product”. Thus, the individual pendants can be individually combined or installed as a large lighting sculpture which creates a corresponding ambience depending on the arrangement.
The designs are available on many online portals, as well as at architects and the well-stocked specialist retailers. We are already looking forward to what the design duo will come up with next. We’ll report on them as soon as there’s news!
