Crea-re Pendant Clayx
Crea-re Calyx of flower series of paper mache lamps refers to the birth of a fresh and new structure. The form of this lamp resembles a flower in different stages of development. The light comes through the porous surface of the cup and creates soft shadows around the room, complementing the decor of the interior and completely transforming its atmosphere. To create this series of lamps Crea-Re was inspired by the sketchbook Herbarium of a Polish artist and writer Stanisław Wyspiański. Flowers were also a great source of inspiration for him to create his fantastic frescos and drawings.

Crea-re offers eco friendly, self designed, handmade products. Crea-re’s name derives from ‘creativity’ CREA and from ‘recycling’ RE.
Crea-Re is a duo based in Barcelona Spain, designers Maria Fiter (Polish) who projects eco friendly lighting and furniture and Marco Migliorisi (Italian) who designs eco cases for musical instruments. Their belief is that properly designed interiors have a positive impact on our mood and state of mind.
“I create eco friendly lighting made mostly with paper mache and wood. To create paper pulp lamps I use only old newspapers, in this way they are 100% recycled. In my wooden products I use only water based varnish and beeswax finish. Each paper pulp lamp is different, it is not possible to make two exactly the same. I make each of them by myself and each of them has its own story. Their stories talk about my inspirations to create them. In the series of lamps called “Copernicus” the inspiration for all of the lamps comes from the planets of the Solar System like: Luna, Jupiter, Pluto, Globe. Art is also art a great source of inspiration for me. The structure of lamps gray, porous, irregular, dry and cracked was inspired by the paintings of the Polish artist group called Grupa Nowohucka.
Many of our projects are made from recycled materials: lamps made from unwanted newspapers, lamps from clips, shelves from wood which was doomed to be thrown out, bags made from old truck tarpaulin. We are against disposing of things. Crea-re gives a second life to the objects.”
