“The Galiano lighting series was inspired by materials native to our West Coast home. Galiano’s bio-degradable light shade is made from reclaimed Douglas fir. The twig, which serves as the light’s pull switch, is a section of a wind-downed arbutus branch collected from beautiful Galiano Island after one of the unprecedented windstorms of this past winter.
With the Galiano series we pay our respects to the simple beauty of the natural resources that surround us on the West Coast, while keeping in mind that we must design to minimize the impact of our work on the environment. The fixture is designed to be disassembled into its component parts for reuse and/or recycling at the end of its life cycle. Simple disassembly and end-of-life cycle instructions are permanently attached to the inside of the canopy to encourage proper recycling, composting, and repurposing.”
