Ananas Large

$535 CAD

The Ananas has a surprise. While the light is off the shade is opaque white with a striking patterned surface of light and shadow. When illuminated, the shade is translucent and glowing like a paper lantern. This bit of magic occurs because the Ananas is 3D printed from a cellulose fiber-reinforced plant-based biopolymer. Both minimalist and warm, the Ananas is perfect for any modern interior looking for a unique and sustainable lamp to provide an elegant and inviting atmosphere. More information about the materials used is available in the tab below.

This product is part of a collaboration with Mexico City-based Decimal Industries. The pendant lamps in this collection are powered Decimal's perfectly engineered and elegant LED module. This high-quality light source is combined with 3D printed recycled and biopolymer plastic shades to create a product as sustainable as it is beautiful. The Decimal x Cyrc product line is an exploration of building products that contribute to the creation of a circular waste-free economy. 

 

What it's made from now is about where it came from and where it's going. 

The Baleen is composed of two parts. The translucent shade and a second small element that connects the shade to the LED module. The shade element of the Baleen is 3D printed from recycled PET made by the conscionable folks at Reflow Filaments in Amsterdam. The amount of recycled material used in the product is approximately equivalent to 35 post consumer recycled plastic bottles. The opaque black LED module connection piece is 3D printed from a carbon fiber infused PLA from Proto-Pasta in the USA. PLA is non-toxic biodegradable polymer made from plant starch. At Cyrc we want to use to recycled plastics as much as possible to give a material that has already been produced a longer life as a new durable product and then make sure it gets recycled into a new product at the end of that life. Unfortunately, we haven't yet found a recycled source of PLA filament for 3D printing that matches the beauty of the virgin PLA filament used in this product. It was a tough call to make, but we're working on a solution. 
Please let us know when our product is at the end of it's days with you and we will direct you towards local recycling or returning the product back to us to be re-manufactured. Our goal is always to keep this beautiful technical nutrient in a circular economy.
More detailed information on the plastics is below. 
PLA (polylactic acid) 
PLA is amazing. It's commonly used in 3D printing because of its excellent extrusion properties. It's even used in medical implants because it's non-toxic and gradually dissolves in the body. It's made from renewable plant-based sources such as corn starch, cassava roots, or sugarcane. Although technically biodegradable*, it's not going away too easily. It needs industrial composting to completely break down into innocuous lactic acid. In a landfill, it's expected to hang around for a few hundred years, but during that time it won't leach any toxins into the land, unlike other plastics. PLA is durable and valuable material that is easy to recycle. A dirt nap should always be a last resort.

 

PET(Polyethylene terephthalate)
We know PET all too well. It's what most of those plastic bottles and synthetic garments are made from. PET is a popular plastic for single-use goods and its ubiquity as garbage across the planet is now widely seen a catastrophe. In a landfill, it takes at least 500 years to decompose. That being said, it's a wonder material. Its durability is outstanding and it's easy to recycle.

Your product is made just for you! We typically won't create a stock of products, but instead, leverage the flexibility of 3D printing by manufacturing-on-demand.  This helps us produce efficiently with near zero waste. 

Products can take up to 4-6 weeks to be ready for shipping, but it's often faster. If you need your order expedited please contact sales@cyrcdesign.com.
