Post Lamp is a minimal light fixture designed by Brazilian designers Studio Ninho. Composed of cork, recycled cork sheet, pinewood, the construction of this light is extremely simple and cheap. Even the packaging is simplified down to its basic parts. The aim of the project was to reduce waste and streamline the production, transportation, and distribution of the product.
Post was conceived of two distinct ideas: an unconventional use of recycled cork and the addition of a new function to an ordinary table lamp. The lamp also produces minimal waste because it’s assembled with simple pins and fittings by the user, allowing it to be placed in a small package. It throws a soft, warm light due to the cork material as a shade.
The product is compact and is easily dismantled and packaged to optimize storage, production and distribution.
