The beautiful Phrena pendant, a collaboration between Artecnica and Brooklyn product designer Karl Zahn, is inspired by the pages of a book. Unfold the flat-packing light, and the pages of the light work together in perfect symmetry. Phrena's steel interior frame is coated with white Tyvek, which creates a glow that adds warmth to any environment.
On his approach to green design, Zahn says, "In designing anything, the creator must be aware of the life of the object; not only its intended use but its inception, creation, & afterlife. the things we make today will still be around long after their intended use... while I follow eco-criteria for material selection and manufacture process I try to add something that most designers do not: emotional relationship."
