Light Fixture’s Origin Can Be Tracked By Coordinates

Light Fixture’s Origin Can Be Tracked By Coordinates

This tubelight fixture is made from salvaged trees in Amsterdam and labeled with the coordinates of the tree that was used to make it.

Ninebyfour is a sleek LED tubelight fixture from Amsterdam-based design studio Waarmakers that uses local wood, salvaged from urban trees that would otherwise end up as firewood. Each fixture is unique, crafted from a single piece of Amsterdam wood. The coordinates of the tree used are stamped onto the cork element, allowing customers to find the precise location of the fixture’s origin using Google Maps. Philips LED light tubes enables the use of wood and cork, as these energy efficient bulbs do not emit heat. The first batch is currently available online for 385 euros per unit.
