TEN TREES Since the beginning of the company, the Ten Trees programme was established as a commitment to plant 10 trees for every 200 products sold. Although our products are fundamentally sustainable, we want to ensure that our business as a whole is carbon-neutral. The UK has less than a third of the native tree cover of many other European countries. We have partnered with The Heart of England Forest on building and protecting a vast new unbroken woodland in the middle of England. To date we have planted 9,000 trees and we are well on our way to reach our target of 35,000 trees by April...

DESIGN COLLECTION The Design Collection has sculptural forms and biomimicry at its core, taking inspiration from the patterns found extensively in nature. The lighting objects found in this collection are born out of studies into natural formations and how to recreate them using glass, metal and light. These designs employ intricate materiality and componentry to bring the design narrative to life.

VORONOI The organic forms in this collection stem from the voronoi pattern found in the forest canopy and throughout nature. We created a 3D model of the pattern and smoothed its edges to simulate natural erosion over time. Our designers then introduced the singular spiral of LED filament to mimic the Fibonacci sequence seen in pine cones and ferns. The result is a unique collection of statement mouth blown bulbs, carved by nature. Forestry Research Institute, Malaysia Source: Mike Norton
