Roest Vertical 45 Suspension Light

by Graypants


The Roest Vertical 45 Suspension Light is part of the Roest collection designed by VanJoost for Graypants, which bends the norm with its unpretentious simplicity. The light is in an elegant cylinder shape, its stainless steel surface rusted to a beautifully warm texture. Roest stems from nature’s reaction between steel, oxygen, water and time, the rusting process turning every light into a unique object. Handmade in Holland, Roest presents natural colours in unusual settings.

Graypants teamed up with Dutch designer VanJoost to expand on their curiosities and explorations into the world of lighting. The collaboration with VanJoost highlights Graypants unique fascination with nature and material research. By combining these two principals, they were able to create a truly unique aesthetic to enhance the world of lighting. The Roest collection is a celebration of friendship, light and natural beauty.

Available in two finishes: natural or zinc, please make your selection amongst the Finish option above.

The Roest collection includes several vertical suspension lights, horizontal suspension lights, ceiling and wall lights, available in natural and zinc finishes.

VanJoost and Graypants design studio

Graypants is a design studio founded by Seattle-based architects Seth Grizzle and Jonathan Junker in 2007. Their bold creativity has led to diverse designs in products and architecture, especially Scraplights, the brand's flagship line of pendant lights made entirely from repurposed corrugated cardboard. Since then, more collections have been created, always focusing on recycled paper or natural materials such as wood.
