Crea-re Pluto Floor Lamp
Floor paper pulp lamp Pluto is made from paper mache obtained from old newspapers and from wood. This lamp belongs to the collection of two lamps which name refers to the name of the dwarf planet called Pluto.
Its structure is changing while orbiting around the Sun. That fact become a source of inspiration for Crea-re who created two lamps. Pluto’s internal structure consists of dense core of rocks surrounded by a mantle of ice. Its orbit is elongated and when Pluto is closer to the Sun – the temperature increase causing the ices to sublimate into gas.
The second version of the same “Pluto” lamp is an effect of the reverse phenomenon.
As Pluto moves away from the Sun, its atmosphere gradually freeze out, and fall to the ground.

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.”
