Follow the story from waste to glory.

Our lamps are manufactured in collaboration with Göteborgs Kyrkliga Stadsmission. Here we have a craftmanlike production that contributes to create peace and quiet in which to work and room for reflection.


The lamps are then signed by the person who made it, creating pride of work but also the invigorating feeling of being part of something. Trace the full story of each lamp with its ID number, from waste material, production and the final interior.
