RECLAIM is a collection of handcrafted pendant lights, made from 100% biowaste. Designed by the Finnish design studio Caracara Collective, the range represents a new wave of sustainable Nordic design, envisioning a future without harmful materials, where waste is a resource. Made from orange peels, collected from supermarkets’ juice machines and pine needles from discarded Christmas trees, the RECLAIM range includes six different styles: Light Orange Peel; Roasted Orange Peel; Extra Roasted Orange Peel; Pine Needles and Reed; Pine Needles and Light Orange Peel; Pine Needles and Roasted Orange Peel.
Handcrafted by Caracara at the studio workshop in Helsinki using local waste, the studio has also developed the binder from 100% natural ingredients making the range fully biodegradable. Once the product’s premeditated lifespan is over they can be easily composted or broken down to make new designs, with no traces left in the natural environment!
No bulb is included. We advise you to use an E14 LED bulb as they are long-lasting, energy-efficient and fully recyclable. They also generate no heat, making them extra safe to use with the biomaterial.
Each product is made to order to further minimise any negative impacts. The full range is now available for pre-order in-store and online! Production time is approximately 3 weeks.
Each item is handmade and therefore, nearly impossible to replicate identically but we hope that you see
this as an advantage rather than a vice!
How to recycle: The main body of this product is fully degradable and it can be simply composted. Fittings and cable will require separate recycling.
