IMPASTO Pendant 02

IMPASTO is a self-invented biodegradable natural fibre composite made of leftovers from wood-, coffee- and skin production. The raw materials are mixed with pigment into a dough, pressed, rolled and folded into flat sheets. The colours become partially mixed. This makes every sheet unique. Afterwards the sheet can be shaped by vacuum forming.The project was based on sustainable materials research. This led to experiments with different natural fibres and binders, with the aim of creating a new material that is biodegradable, easy to work with and simple to understand. The development of the production process is driven by an idea of creating a process that is adaptable to the industry, but has a unique output as if it was handmade.

IMPASTO Pendant 02 is a small pendant lamp made for Danish Craft Collection 18 in 2014.

The lamp was developed during a residency at the Danish Art Workshops
