Designing the kozo lamps
Our world is flooded with industrial materials, waiting for a chance to be Upcycled or Repurposed and become a lot more than what we know of them. By using an unexpected material to describe everyday objects we achieve a new- "out of the box"- design and get a chance to tell a different story...

The kozo lamps are made out of galvanized iron pipes and fittings, handmade by us at our design clinic. The raw material maintains the authentic spirit of the design, rough and vivid. Galvanized iron is rust free, but it also ages a bit at the edges and joints where the metal is exposed, the result is a slight peaceful touch of beautiful rust, exposing its age.

Each kozo lamp has a unique innovative faucet light switch, giving it the authentic and fun side of design.

Galvanized iron = zinc coated iron
It does not rust and can last for many years without any need of treatment. By using the galvanized material we save any additional coating process or color appliance. It preserves the unique quality of the material, achieving a complete and honest design for the kozo lamps.

Standards & regulations
The kozo lamps are developed with a professional electronics engeneer that is part of the R&D team. Each lamp contains high quality electric components with standard certificate of approval. wiring is heat resistant and isolated. All the components are tight and secured making the lamp stern, safe and reliable.

We take pride in the durability and quality of the kozo lamps and our goal is to provide high standard products with good service and attitude and to bring light & joy to everybodys life!

In our designs we strive to give new life and meaning to the materials that we use, always keeping it on the green side. Our basic attitude is to manufacture less. We don't mind using ready-made where we can, giving a credit to someone else and manufacturing less, thus saving the world additional unnecessary production.

We go the extra mile to produce environmentally responsible, long lasting products. It is our policy to refrain from going commercial - so by designing effective, happy, handmade, and non-commercial objects, we give more to the world and take less.

Thank you for choosing to invest your time in exploring our designs. We love you!
