The Trask Lamp is made from steel, which is a commonly recycled material. Three-fourths of all American steel ends up recycled into new products.
The steel alloy used to make the Trask Lamp has recycled content ranging between 30% and 40% depending on the production batch.
Environmentally preferable finish
Powder coating is a durable, low VOC (volatile organic compound) finish. Once the paint is cured on the surface, no particles will be emitted into the air. This improves indoor air quality and eliminates strong odors in your living space.
Trask Lamp takes the efficiency of LED lighting and blends it with flexibility. Manufactured to ship flat, maximize material yield and eliminate cutting waste, the Trask Lamp is a truly eco-centric design. Inviting the user to participate as co-designer, the Trask Lamp redefines the relationship between a product and its user. This lamp functions as a catalyst in establishing a dialogue about the virtues and opportunities in locally made and sustainable products.
The Trask body is in the United States. The manufacturing location was selected for its proximity to our studio as well as for its manufacturing practices and labor conditions.
