The Algarve Cork Pendant Light Design
Our indoor lighting should support the natural circadian rhythm of our bodies. This is accomplished by regulating our light exposure so that we are exposed to the appropriate spectrum of light at the appropriate time.
This product brings enhanced touch by providing an environment rich in textures, fascinating and comfortable, and even absorptive. The cork also has sound improving properties that allows our nervous system to become more relaxed in the indoor space.
The Algarve Cork Pendant Light puts you in contact with curves and circles present in nature, thanks to their gentle and pleasant features, these shapes evoke calmness and peacefulness. These patterns are shown to be preferred by our minds and bodies. In fact, it is shown that people find spaces more beautiful when there are curved shapes present rather than sharp and straight edged ones.
It allows to experience natural textures, which can positively influence the perception of space. Natural materials may make us feel more at ease than man-made materials because we can intuitively read them better.
It provides neutral and earth tones to your spaces.
Thanks to its design and building materials, it caters calming, elegant, productive, intimate and fresh interiors.
Climate issue addressed This cork pendant light addresses climate change in its production by preventing pollution with the use of sustainable and natural materials, promoting and using clean solar energy as a solution for people in need of light and power; and supporting reforestation projects with the Eden Reforestation Project.
Sustainable materials It is built using.
Ethical production This product ethical production supports positive communities, fair and safe work. 5% of the value of these lights goes to the WakaWaka Foundation - a non-profit organization based in the Netherlands- that supports the distribution of WakaWaka solar lamps, to give them to people in need of light, located in areas of humanitarian crisis. The foundation works closely with aid agencies to share WakaWaka lamps. These WakaWaka solar lamps are the most efficient currently available: One day of charging allows to use 80 hours of light, particularly useful in areas without access to electricity (i.e. 1 billion people). This solution is also a safe alternative to kerosene lamps, which pollute and generate many domestic accidents. Having access to light also means an increase in the standard of living for each family: the WakaWaka lamp allows children to study in the evening and families to cook, work and live safe. For every light purchased, someone else receives light.
Best environmental practices Within its practices to support the environment, it works with circular economy by reusing resources, offsetting emissions with the use of natural raw materials, and further developing the use of renewable energy with its structural partnership with the WakaWaka foundation, which mission is to enable access to sustainable, solar energy for people in need of light and power. Solar energy is the solution for people who live off-grid (over 1 billion) without access to electricity in low income countries. Access to light and power means access to education and communication, to income generating opportunities, to self-belief and a better future.
