Bolla brings awareness to how the escalated use of packaging materials is affecting our environment. Pointing the way to a circular economy instead of designing things to fail, bubble wrap sourced from packaging waste is used as a formwork and transformed through parametric modeling and innovative research into the decorative light fitting BOLLA.
Made of an eco-friendly concrete mixture that has been custom developed with material scientists, recycled plastic particles are combined into a concrete aggregate and poured into an organic shaped mould. The light source itself fulfills the sustainable narrative using wafer-thin OLED panels made from recycled materials – and providing a soft, and warm natural light that is fully integrated.
Together, the integrated OLED and textured concrete with perforations disperses light uniformly across Bolla for a striking, effervescent glow.
