New lighting created using food waste and wood dust

The Cumulus pendant works as an individual light above a small space or as a series of two or three lights used above a counter or dining table space.

OAKLAND, Calif. – Model No., a company that makes 3D-printed custom furniture is offering a new 3D printed lighting collection made from food waste and wood dust.

“The inspiration for this new collection derived from both the innovative shapes and configurations often found within nature or within the ancient world,” said Phillip Raub, Model No. CEO. “Entering this new category, we felt there was a unique opportunity to create visually creative and inventive lighting fixtures to add value to the current options in the market while also being complementary to our current product portfolio.”

The EOS series is designed to live as a family of objects, according to the company. The lamps share form, scale and are compelling when arranged as a group or as independent fixtures. The collection is naturally translucent and opaque that creates an unusual visual on its surface while spreading a soft, even light. The EOS series retails for $430.

The Amphora series is inspired by the rich variety of ancient vases of the Mediterranean. The series is designed to illuminate everything from a small space with one pendant to a series of pendants that could be used to light a larger space.  These pieces retail for between $330 and $480.

The Celestial pendant is inspired by stars and astronomy, which brings “mesmerizing style and glow to the space,” according to the company. The pendant retails for between $330 and $480 depending on the configuration.

The new 3-Point floor lamp combines a midcentury modern aesthetic with sustainable materials and technology. The lamp features a 3D printed shade that’s built onto a tripod of sustainably sourced hardwood legs and retails for $800.

And finally, the Cumulus pendant is inspired by the layered nature of cumulonimbus clouds. It works as an individual light above a small space or as a series of two or three lights used above a counter or dining table space. It retails for between $330 and $480 depending on the configuration.

“With the Celestial pendant and the Cumulus pendant, we were deeply inspired by the abstract forms found in astrology and clouds to create these distinct designs,” Raub added. “With the Eos and the Amphora series, we were particularly drawn to the various shapes and sizes of ancient vases found along the Mediterranean, and the idea of fusing those unique silhouettes with lighting to create a truly sculptural and visually interesting fixture.”

The lighting pieces are currently available on the Model No. website as well as on the Perigold site and on

With this launch, Model No. adds to its growing furniture offerings with the debut of premium tabletop, décor and other household products. The new products also include flatware, ceramics, dinnerware, glassware, candle sets, textiles and kid’s products.

Furnishings from Model No. are made domestically with sustainably sourced materials and produced using eco-friendly automated tech including 3D printing.
