Designed by Ciclus | Country: Spain
“The so Spanish preference for wine goes closer to ecology. On this way moves the ‘Cavallum’, a curious creation by Ciclus, a sustainable design Studio founded in 2001 by Brazilian-born Tati Guimarães. Settled in Barcelona since 1998, Guimarães starts to see amazing results of her original work, always addressed to sustainability y its three axes: reduce, reuse, recycle.The Cavallum is a box of cava (the Catalan equivalent to French champagne) or wine that transforms into an elegant lamp. The piece has been praised in prestigious ecologycal webs, like Treehugger.com, and will be featured in IDN World magazine, in Hong Kong. Spanish newspapers, such as Avui and La Vanguardia, are also publishing articles about the wine-lamp as a cool and ecologycal Christmas gift.
