Product description

Stickbulb’s LED lighting collections are made from ethically sourced wood. Inspired by a pile of long linear wooden cut-offs in their workshop, RUX designers challenged themselves to develop a truly sustainable lighting system. As a starting point, they only considered designs that could be manufactured locally and affordably within a five mile radius of their New York City office. They chose to use reclaimed and sustainably sourced woods as a primary building material, and sourced energy efficient LED technologies and components. The collection was designed with the least number of parts possible and with connections that make the pieces easy to separate for maintenance, recycling, or reuse.


Their wood includes:


Maple:

Sourced locally from sustainably managed forests primarily in New York and Pennsylvania. Characterized by a minimal and consistent grain and creamy white colour.


Walnut:

Sourced locally from sustainably managed forests primarily in New York and Pennsylvania. Walnut is a timeless wood, with a rich, classic brown colour and occasional burled grain.


Heart Pine (reclaimed):

Carefully selected from demolished buildings in and around New York, the Stickbulb Longleaf Pine is remarkable for red to golden brown tones and clearly defined, dense, old growth grain. Occasional nail holes and areas of discoloration speak to its rich history.


Ebonized Oak:

Sustainably sourced American Red Oak typically has a straight and open grain and permits easy staining. Hand-finished to produce a lustrous dark, blackened finish that allows the pronounced texture and grain of the wood to shine through.


Water Tower Redwood (reclaimed):

Majestic Sequoia Sempervirens or Redwood, originating from the legendary forests of the West Coast is a stunning, old growth wood. Reclaimed from NYC Water Towers, years of exposure to the elements on one side and contact with water on the other result in a rich, red colour threaded with occasional black veins.
