Rebirth-lighting / Lighting


Our lighting “Rebirth” is on the re-use of defoliation. Leaves fall in autumn. It’s a pity that people used to burn them or collect them as trash. We treat the fallen leaves with some chemical solution to take off mesophyll. The remaining leaf vein will not decay. We apply latex onto the vein to get a transparent new material and stick them together for the new lamp cover. This design is environmentally friendly because it reuses fallen leaves. It resembles symbolizes the rebirth of leaves.
