we+ Unveils Remli: A Portable Light Redefining Urban Recyclables

 

we+ continues its exploration of urban mining with the introduction of Remli, a portable lighting fixture that redefines our interaction with recyclable materials from urban environments. Remli addresses the relationship between humans and materials by repurposing waste from Tokyo into new, functional elements. In Tokyo’s industrial waste recycling plants, fine debris and rubble, often destined for landfills, are collected, crushed, mixed with soil, and applied to the lighting fixture using plastering techniques.

Remli Transforms Urban Debris into modern Lighting fixtures

 

The process not only prevents waste from reaching landfills but also transforms it into a valuable resource. Developed through a collaboration between contemporary design studio we+’s ‘Urban Origin’ research project and Ambientec, Remli exemplifies innovative design by turning challenging-to-recycle waste into a practical and aesthetically pleasing lighting solution.
