Superdupertube: Sustainable Hemp Office Lamp

Post Image

Snøhetta, a renowned Norwegian design studio, has collaborated with lighting brand Ateljé Lyktan to create the Superdupertube, a modern office lamp made from extruded hemp and sugarcane bioplastic. The design is a contemporary update of Ateljé Lyktan’s Supertube, an iconic office light from the 1970s.

The Superdupertube is a sustainable alternative, with a lower carbon footprint compared to traditional aluminium lamps. It is made from renewable hemp, sourced from the Netherlands for its high quality, mixed with polylactic acid (PLA) bioplastic derived from sugarcane. This innovative material is not only durable but also compostable in industrial composters, making it a truly eco-friendly choice.

The lamp’s design features twisted louvres, which not only add a unique architectural detail but also help soften the light by angling the glare away, making it perfect for office environments. The organic beige color of the lamp is natural, with a pattern that varies slightly due to the different crop conditions each year, giving each lamp a unique touch.

Snøhetta and Ateljé Lyktan’s collaboration on the Superdupertube is a testament to their commitment to sustainability and innovation in design. By reimagining a classic design with modern, eco-friendly materials, they have created a lamp that is not only functional and beautiful but also environmentally responsible.
