At Varaluz, they admit to being Lightly Twisted.
They handcraft light fixtures and furniture out of eco-friendly materials. Some people might find what they do a bit extreme…glass shades made of recycled bottles? Fixtures made of recycled steel? Sure thing. They are continually developing new ways of using recycled, reclaimed, natural, and sustainable materials into their fixtures. To them, it just makes sense. There is a bit too much waste in the world, and upcycling yields some pretty darn cool results. Varaluz takes these responsible materials and crafts fixtures the old-fashioned way with the very skilled hands of their artistic team in the Philippines.
Many of their shell fixtures require hundreds of hours of hand-labor to apply and polish the shell. They hand-lay in mosaics and natural fibers, one piece at a time. Their newly developed artisanal hand-worked chrome is a much more eco- and people-friendly chrome. And their other low-V.O.C. emitting paints, finishes, and resins are all applied by hand. Take a close look at their fixtures. Each one is a showpiece of the texture, individuality, and time that comes with handcrafting.
They may not be what you expect from a lighting company, and that is just the way they like it. They are firm believers that handcrafting and eco-responsibility create the most lasting light fixtures.
Handcrafted, eco-friendly, and always inspired. That’s Varaluz.
