Model No.’s First-Ever Lighting Pieces Pair Mid-Century Charm with Sustainability

Since its launch just a few years ago, Model No. has made products ranging from chairs to coffee tables to planters to headphone stands, all with a focus on design that oozes with a mid-century ethos and sustainability built into its core. However, until the other day, the Oakland-based furniture company’s oeuvre had yet to include lighting fixtures of any kind.

Model No.’s new lighting series features 15 pieces spread out over two collections and a pair of standalones. For the Eos line, there are six table lamps, each with a unique shape which stands atop one of four wood stand options: walnut, ash, charcoal ash, or salvage elm. The seventh Eos piece is a magnificent 3-point floor lamp that stands over 2ft tall with a coned shade and wooden legs. On the other side of things is the Amphora series of hanging pendants, consisting of six beautiful silhouettes about 18” in height and hooked up with either a soft plug-in cord or a metal hardwired cord that can be fitted to your ceiling. The pair of standalone pendants — the Cumulus and the Celestial — sports designs that are somewhat different from the rest of the pack.

Inspired by the vases made by Ancient Mediterranea artisans, these shades are all artistically evocative yet stylistically versatile, able to blend with most home decors. Each lamp has three shade color options as well: alabaster, acacia, or obsidian. In order to minimize waste, every shade that’s ordered is 3D printed on-demand using a PLA pellet blend made from a combination of food waste, such as corn and sugar remnants, wood dust, and sustainably-sourced FSC-certified hardwood. The lamps are then hand-finished at Model No.’s studio in Oakland.

The prices range from $420 for its table lamps and small-sized pendants to $800 for its floor lamp. The lighting collection is available now through Model No.’s website.

Purchase: $420+
