Seed System kitset lightshades are on average 1/30th of the volume of the assembled light. This aims to help minimize the effects of shipping and to reduce the design’s environmental footprint.
All bamboo (the primary material) is a secondary product, from renewable forests in China grown as a food source. We have visited these plantations and are satisfied with the quality of their systems.
The lights are intended for use in dry interior conditions only and can be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened slighty in warm soapy water when the light is switched off. Do not use detergents.
