"Featuring 6 Eleek products and an Editor's Pick"
A few manufacturers are recognizing the importance of reuse. Though not a full-on trend in the lighting industry (unlike carpeting manufacturers, who have been onto recycling for years), it is worthy of note. Eleek, a company in Portland, Oregon, has created its entire product line around the concept, with items such as the Spoon sconce (left) and the Pod, Starlight, and Normandy pendants all fabricated from recycled metals.
The Piolet Pendant is constructed of brushed stainless steel and glass blocks, and measures 7 inches wide and 18 inches high. Offered with incandescent or fluorescent lamping, the fixture is ideal for general room lighting, mood lighting, and retail/hospitality applications.
Featuring Art Deco instincts, the Gatsby sconce measures 34 inches high by 27 inches wide with a diameter of 34 inches. The Gatsby is available in a standard tumbled aluminum finish, clear or colored powdercoats, and optional patinas. The fixture is 100 percent recycled cast aluminum and ivory polycarbonate. It takes a fluorescent, and operates on a voltage of 120V to 277V.
