After working with Reditum, a German furniture design company, we were inspired by their socially responsible ethos and unique approach to design. We were challenged to create a lighting product to be sold alongside Reditum’s current range. We analysed Reditum’s current products, one of which is the Moveo.Via. exploring the materials used and manufacturing processes of each component. This helped us define the characteristics that make a product uniquely ‘Reditum’.
Orbis incorporates the two materials currently used by Reditum: wood, from disused pallets, and rubber, from old bicycle inner tubes. These materials allow for a characterful and charming light whilst keeping the ‘rustic’ appearance inherent in Reditum’s range.
- Wood pallet
