Designed by Kensaku Oshiro, the Sparkler collection of floor and table luminaires evokes the aesthetic of traditional rice paper Japanese lanterns. The weatherproof, solar-powered lights are made of a basalt-colored, powder-coated aluminum frame onto which a round polypropylene cord in taupe is hand woven. The LED light source is an 8-watt lithium battery that is rechargeable via a concealed USB. The lanterns come in three sizes and can be converted into a curved floor lamp via a high arch support or hung from the ceiling or pergola beam.

La Pietra Compattata
This stone-look surfacing is made in Italy of 60 percent recycled content recovered from the stone-cutting process using recycled water, manufacturing waste, and a simple drying process that eliminates CO2 emissions for cleaner air. After the raw materials are crushed into a stone powder mixture, they are cold-pressed with cement binding into a compact surfacing with a low embodied energy. Frost-proof, slip-resistant, salt-resistant, and high-compression-resistant, the surfacing is suitable for exterior cladding and pavers, wet areas, and spaces with high commercial traffic.
