Creating a pendant house made of wood is demanding. As wood is a natural material it needs special handling and craftsmanship to maintain its qualities. The result is a pendant housing made of pine plywood with birch veneer.
By reusing reflector details from worn-out TV sets, we found a new and climate-friendly material source. The reflectors don’t need any processing, except cutting into their right shape.
The amount of plastic used is cut in half compared to conventional louvres. The result is still high efficiency, a controlled light distribution and an overall lighter construction.
Wires without worries
To avoid nickel plating the wire lock is in brass; its original material.
Throughout the process, we’ve strived to use as few types of material as possible. As a result, the end caps are attached to the luminaire without using any screws or other attachments. Instead, we’ve turned to more traditional craftsmanship skills to join the pieces together.
To us, good design is a matter of sustainability and longevity. Our core principle is to take away everything that is not necessary and make the design as clean and thought-through as possible. Kvisten is a result of this: a pendant that will add a natural, Scandinavian look and sophisticated atmosphere to any office environment.
The packaging is completely free from both EPS and plastics, and we’ve used recyclable materials throughout.
