The Recast Sustainable Lighting Series

View all 12 Photos

A lighting series that creatively highlights the aesthetic possibilities of sustainable design.

Created by the Amsterdam-based Waarmakers studio, Recast is a creative as well as refined lighting range that explores the aesthetic evolution of a specially chosen no-waste production cycle. In a similar way to another Waarmakers project, the Recast collection puts a focus on sustainable manufacturing methods. Here, the designers used a stone-like composite for the base of the lamps. Made with off-cut parts that have been repeatedly re-introduced in the manufacturing process, the wall lamps are similar to terrazzo lighting and display patterns and colors from previous products. Thus, the ingenious technique provides a visual history of the no-waste crafting method. The bases show the different layers of the production cycle over time. With each run, the lamps will feature increasingly more intricate patterns, textures, and color combinations.

The first edition uses off-cuts from early prototypes. As a result, these cylindrical wall lamps boast terrazzo-like patterns. A notch in the middle provides a space for the LED light. One-of-a-kind, each Recast wall light is handmade in Amsterdam. The first series comprises four versions: Galaxy Black, Pistachio Green, Blossom Pink, and Stone Gray. All of them resemble terrazzo lighting. The studio offers the option to pair these bases with either milk or clear glass tubes, which create different lighting effects. Waarmakers also provides advice on what type of dimmer works with their LEDs. Prices for the handcrafted Recast collection start from €390, or about $420. Photographs© Waarmakers Studio.
