Varaluz - 70% recycled steel. 0% recycled style.
Designed for living, Varaluz fuses the art of illumination with innovation, creating an unparalleled lighting collection that unites beauty, utility, sustainability and fun.
Encompassing a range of styles, from traditional to contemporary and rustic to city-chic, Varaluz lighting adds character and warmth to diverse environments. Although an eclectic sensibility defines the Varaluz collection, each product shares the same DNA. Handcrafted from earth-friendly materials and recycled content of 70% or more, each Varaluz fixture represents timeless design tempered by an eco-friendly footprint.
Since 2006, when Ron Henderson founded Varaluz in Las Vegas, he’s been discovering inspiration in unexpected places. He traces the origins of early designs, Shaken and Aizen, to scribbles on a cocktail napkin. His background in aerospace engineering shapes the company’s approach to developing artful, sustainable and quality fixtures, and he immerses himself in the production process from concept to completion. As a new idea moves forward, Ron creates precise renderings and he partners with master craftsmen in the Philippines who hand-forge and hand-finish each product with maximum care.
Natural elements and urban artifacts infuse the collection with wonder and whimsy. The Soho family brings nature indoors, transforming recycled steel and reclaimed glass into ceiling and wall fixtures that resemble tangled vines adorned with torn parchment. An old Nevada miner’s cabin fashioned from bottles inspires another best-selling group, Fascination. Fascination presents an astonishing array of fixtures and room accessories made with colorful glass discs and recycled steel. A perennial favorite, Pinwheel, springs from the delight of a childhood toy. This playful design is a simple sphere covered with individual pinwheels of recycled aluminum.
As the collection evolves and grows, Varaluz adds new features to existing products and introduces exciting new lines. The company revised Pinwheel for faster assembly and greater uniformity. Varaluz also created Rain Drops, easy-to-install recycled glass drops, that pair with Rain pendants. Together, Rain and Rain Drops mimic the restful effect of water splashed on glass, with large drops caught in a moment of suspension.
A recent Varaluz addition, Radius, borrows from a universe of circular forms, including Stonehenge’s earthbound ruins and Saturn’s heavenly rings. Fashioned from crushed Capiz shell with a gold dust or herringbone finish, Radius’ natural simplicity evokes the nostalgia of mid-century motels while creating an effect that’s light years ahead. By contrast, the new Argyle pendant exudes cheeky fashion sense, mixing an iconic preppy sweater pattern with a disco-dash of silver frit—brilliant!
