Designed by Sep Verboom, the hanging “Fan” lamp is made from a reclaimed metal frame that used to be part of a fan. By reusing and repurposing materials, Verboom wants to innovate a more efficient way to handle waste in Cebu City in the Philippines. By combining the metal structure with natural rattan, which is woven according to traditional techniques by local craftsmen, the waste gets a new life. The rattan provides a natural touch to “Fan” and connects it to the rich culture of weaving workshops. “Fan” is a perfect example of Sep Verboom’s vision, which is not new or oriented towards the spectacular; it is shaped by a no-nonsense aesthetic sensibility and privileges simplicity, sustainability and function. He strives to bring things back to their roots, where thinking and collaborating with local people evolves into a better way of living. Verboom views the entire environment as a potential source for something innovative, and believes that every existing material, object or craft has the potential to become a life changer, whatever the scale. His ultimate goal is a revolution of the industries.
