I’ve gone star-crazy at the sight of these eco.friendly beauties, so please bear with me while I post a gazillion of them for you to enjoy. Of course, I just had to start off by showing you the black one — it’s so bold and dramatic.
You may have seen various knock offs of these lighting fixtures around the globe, but apparently, these are the “original” Starlightz by Earth Friendly, which are available at L.A.’s Artecnica and several international retailers. Starlightz is yet another eco.chic line carried by Artecnica, who are hosting their Design With A Conscience exhibit at the New York International Gift Fair this week.
Each of these eco.super.stars is made from 100% wood-free and chlor-free bleached paper, in addition to being completely handcrafted — printed, punched and glued by hand. The Earth Friendly folks add that the handmade paper is a merging of "cotton fibres and flower petals, combined with manual silkscreen printing."
