The LIN pendant lights have been turned by hand on a lathe from blocks of laminated squares of Linoleum flooring. These playful and subtly vibrant pendants have been finished with a natural jute covered lighting cord, a solid wood E27 fitting bulb holder and a standard 3 pin plug. Statement yet welcoming lighting to brighten up interior or commercial spaces.
The LIO Single Stem Vase, LIN Pendant, and PIEN Batch Stem Vase form the studios first product range, LINO Lab. All the products are driven by the potential of the under-celebrated qualities of Linoleum flooring, one of the most environmentally clean surface materials, yet largely replaced by vinyl flooring – quicker, cheaper, brighter. The product range disrupts our familiar associations of Linoleum as a flooring product by re-appropriating it to craft – a context that is deeply rooted in its production but rarely noted in its mass-manufactured setting. By transforming this industrialised product into something intimately social, the products celebrate Linoleum’s malleable personality.
LINO Lab calls on you to unlearn Linoleum – betray the familiar, shake it off, speculate with a hammer.
Bringing Linoleum back into interiors from a different perspective.
