Seattle-based design studio Graypants produces an ingenious lighting collection that is made from clear-coated steel, frosted tempered glass and handmade repurposed cardboard.

The Scraplights collection of recycled lighting fixtures is made from repurposed cardboard that is laser-cut and assembled by hand using non-toxic adhesives, the company said. “By taking advantage of cardboard's naturally beautiful tones and corrugated textures, these earth-friendly cardboard pendant lights are literally ‘creating a brighter now.’"

Made in the USA, Scraplights consists of a wide variety of styles, shapes and sizes, from an 11-in.-diameter unit to an over scale model measuring 64 ins. wide. All products come with a hard-wired cord + cable set with matching powder-coated ceiling canopy.

Prices range from $295 to $8,000.
