The Graypants Ohio White Lamp is one of the many lamps from the collection of the American designer brand with the production in the Netherlands. Durable lamps that are made from recycled cardboard form the basis of the collection that consists of hanging lamps, table lamps and floor lamps.
The team gathered around Graypants creates designer handmade lamps and furniture from environmentally friendly recyclable materials. The entire Graypants collection made an incredible success and you can see many of its parts in restaurants, offices and homes around the world.
Although the lamp’s items are made of cardboard, they are quite reliable, but it is not recommended to use them in rooms with high humidity or outdoors. This may cause deformation of the lampshade.
The parts for the lamps are cut by a laser-guided machine and smooth burned on the bottom. Hereinafter, the individual parts are provided with a fire-resistant coating. Subsequently, the parts of the lamp are put by hand into one another.
You can get the smaller Ohio 24 lamp with the diameter of 61 cm, while for the larger rooms you can opt for the Ohio 32 model with the diameter of 82 cm.
Drum Series – Ohio
The Drum series boasts a slick blending of materials including sturdy black powder coated steel frames, frosted tempered glass lenses, and our most efficient handmade cardboard shades to date. Lamped with a trio of bulbs (incandescent, compact fluorescent or LED), the Ohio Scraplight provides a generous amount of both up and down-lighting – perfect for commercial and residential environments. All Ohio fixtures come standard with a 2 meter long black fabric cord + cable set with matching powder-coated ceiling canopy.
The elegant and organic shape of the Ohio pendant gives atmosphere to any space, it provides a smooth and decorative lighting.
The Ohio pendant lamp is available in two sizes: Ohio 24: Ø: 61cm x H: 24cm and Ohio 32: Ø: 82cm x H: 33cm.
Handcrafted from recycled cardboard, Graypants’ Scraplight series provides warm, intimate, and functional lighting for any occasion or type of space. Tough and elegant, each is precision cut with a laser cutter and assembled by hand using nontoxic adhesive. All Scraplights are treated with a fire retardant.
Scraplights quickly became a prime example of the principals that Graypants embodies – responsible design, responsible materials, and responsible production. Graypants has partnered with social works programs to provide craft-based work where it is needed the most. People involved with creating Scraplights on a daily basis find this work a very rewarding activity as it is based on skill and craft. This is something Graypants takes pride in.
The Scraplights collection is comprised of three series – the Classic Series, Drum Series and Tilt Lamp Series. All Scraplights feature a handmade recycled cardboard shade, which provide atmosphere to any space. At night, the surfaces of a room are transformed by patterns of light and shadow, caused by the corrugation in the Scraplight shades.
The Classic series includes some of the best selling models, such as the Moon and Disc pendants. The Drum Series is elevated by steel frames and frosted glass diffusers, which provide excellent up and down-lighting to large spaces such as lobbies and conference rooms. Tilt Lamps, which include a table and floor model, have clean black powder coated.
Brand & Designer
“We believe the wide variety in our work has made us better at all aspects of it – whether it be launching a new product line, fabricating a custom installation, or working intimately with clients to create something special.”
Graypants is a team of problem solvers. Anchored in Seattle and Amsterdam, Graypants’ bold creativity leads to diverse designs in products, architecture, and other beautiful objects around the world. Their work expands globally with collaborations and custom designs for leading companies worldwide. Rooted in Seattle as architects, founders Seth Grizzle and Jon Junker decided to further feed their creative appetites through product design and art exhibits. In 2007, “Graypants” was scribbled onto a piece of paper and the new company’s flagship line of pendant lights made entirely of repurposed corrugated cardboard – Scraplights – was promptly introduced.
Scraplights quickly became a prime example of the principles that Graypants embodies to this day – responsible design, responsible materials, responsible production… and having fun. Their second series is the Kerflight series, it has a unique kerf pattern in the shade panels that cast intriguing patterns onto walls and table surfaces. Debuting with swappable and reversible shade panels available in multiple colors — and five distinct personalities — Graypants Kerflight series will literally make a great fit. In 2012, the Amsterdam studio was founded to become a hub for local European production and distribution to over forty countries. The studio has partnered with social works programs to provide craft-based work where needed the most. The Seattle studio continues to provide local production for North America and houses the bustling custom and prototyping shop.
Today, Graypants continues to expand its custom portfolio from architectural installations to public artworks, and has numerous product lines sold throughout the world. The range of their work is comprehensive, covering residential and commercial lighting, furniture, packaging designs, and architecture. In November of 2013, Graypants was awarded AIA Seattle’s Award of Honor for their debut architecture project, Garage. Regardless of the color of pants you wear, you’ll love the Graypants line of recycled lighting. Each Graypants light fixture is made from repurposed cardboard that is laser-cut and assembled by hand using non-toxic adhesives. By taking advantage of cardboard’s naturally beautiful tones and corrugated textures, these earth-friendly cardboard lights are literally “creating a brighter now.”
