the peel lamp project
a lamp collection out of fruit waste (2016)
The inception of 'the peel lamp project' was exploratory research into the possibilities of how too create a new material from local fruit waste of weekly markets.
In 2016, malessa.studio designed the lamp collection "the peel lamp project", which looks at first very industrial and straight, but on the second view very organic through its flexible and soft texture and irregular patterns.
At the market in Maastricht (and around the world), tons of fruit waste are thrown away on a weekly basis. This was the inspiration and motivation for malessa.studio to create a new flexible material made out of local fruit waste and natural rubber.
