‘laflor lamp’ is a suspended lighting device created by nutcreatives studio for the spanish brand, lucirmás. the concept combines the upcycling of a glass bottle with the design of a copper lampshade. on choosing the components that were used, nutcreatives says, ‘we wanted to create a product that could last over generations. so we created a lamp with noble materials and far away from current fashion trends.’ the outcome is an object completely made by the hands of local artisans using traditional manufacturing methods and with low technologies. this functional and easy to assemble accessory is appropriate for a variety of settings – homes, restaurants, hotels – and becomes an item with lasting value as it may be used as a single unit or combined in a sequence of more elements. the final result is completed by a coat of enamel that allows the lamp to be distinguished into three different colors: white, yellow and black-brown.
