By exploring alternative means of production for the timber waste material, we were able to create a new offering and further improve our sustainability practices. Timber is a tactile and versatile material which can be used and repurposed in multiple ways to develop new components.
Marz Designs takes great inspiration from Greek mythology, and a lot of our designs are imbued with a sense of grandeur, the architectural aesthetic of ancient civilisation, such as the column-like elements of our Attalos range. Our new range of lighting continues this classical direction of thinking. Selene – the goddess of the moon – is a name with lunar connotations, meaning light, brightness and gleam. The goddess Selene was known for her personification of life’s constant changes. Since this new range of lighting is an adaptation of one of our existing products (the Terra 00), it felt appropriate to name this range Selene, and continue our exploration of the mythos theme.
“The Selene Surface Sconce is inversely repurposed while the Selene Uplight – crafted from a quarter timber dome that sits atop a cylinder – is derived from the FSC certified timber offcuts from our Terra 00 range.”
