The Sand Light is made out of a new material stemming from a natural resource that the earth has in abundance. Using grains of sand and traditional ceramic techniques, it takes on a smooth yet grainy aesthetic that adds a chic touch of texture in the home. Ephemeral in essence, the Sand Light will crumble back into its original form once its lifecycle is seen through.

Designed by alien and monkey, a design studio based in Barcelona, Spain, the Sand Light might have a short life span, but it makes the most of its time before its end. In fact, people will appreciate the environmentally conscious element that the Sand Light lives by. Available in two colors, black and brown, the Sand Light takes on a soft cube form that can be strung in groups. Stats for Grainy Cube Lamps Trending: Older & Warm
