The Luiz suspension light, designed by Böttcher & Kayser for Mater, is a contemporary interpretation of the ordinary pendant lamp, combining the natural qualities of cork together with traditional craftsmanship. The lamp shade is made in Portugal using locally harvested cork from responsibly managed FSC certified cork oak forests. These trees have an average lifespan of more than 200 years and can be harvested every 9 years without damaging the tree, which protects the cork production as well as the local biodiversity. The metal top of the Luiz is made in Denmark by one of the few remaining workshops that masters the spinning technique to perfection.
The Luiz can be used as a single pendant light or in multiple units to create rows or clusters. The Luiz works well as a suspension light in both residential and public spaces, from living room and dining room to bars, restaurants and reception areas.
The Luiz is available in 2 finishes: with a natural cork shade or with a dark cork shade. Please refer to the Mater Material Catalogue and feel free to contact us for more information on available options.
