High Society made the most of waste from its local beer and coffee industry, allowing the Italian design studio to create a unique range of light sources. The Senilia collection introduces pieces with tubular shapes, each of which is bent, twisted and offered two different color schemes.
The project involved working with discarded coffee bean peels, which are easy to shred, and hops and barley, which must be dehydrated before they can be processed into a usable powder.
Thanks to the fact that the lights are made without extraneous fasteners, the electrical components can be removed easily so that the remainder of the design can be composted. In place of metal components, the designers opted to use ceramic lightbulb holders, which are fully recyclable, as well as recyclable, textile-based cable insulation.
