Lead Recycled Cork LED Lantern

Takanori Urata

Lighting Products and Fixtures Design Lead Recycled Cork LED Lantern by Takanori Urata Recycled corks from wine bottles consumed in Tokyo are collected and re-molded into the body. The light emitted on the cork's soft surface emits a warm glow on the spot. Compact size that can be carried even in times of a disaster. The gentle light leads you to a hope in any place. Rechargeable for up to 13 hours of lighting. This lighting was designed to contribute to a sustainable society by recycling corkscrews, which are usually thrown away, as a valuable resource. As of now, some of the corks collected from about 750 restaurants in Tokyo are being used.
