#7 Soft-Architecture: Cradle to Cradle Lighting Systems
Soft-Architecutre is low environmental impact lighting system developed by Flos. It is created using an innovative system of eco-compatible material with cradle to cradle certification that is strong, light-weight, flexible and fire resistant, used in conjunction with energy efficient lighting. It is a highly environmental conscious product that can be used in any project type from residential to commercial.
The lighting system is integrated with the interior architecture making it one with the building rather than a series of fixtures.
It’s cradle to cradle properties mean it is designed to last and to minimize harm cause to the environment both during production and after it’s ‘death’ as a product.
I think the use of environmentaly conscious materials in the construction of lighting as well as the use of energy conserving lamps themselves is a great idea. Its something you almost don’t consider but I think it is quite clever. The implementation of a cradle to cradle program is obviously excellent, I hope more companies and products go down this path (sooner rather than later).
