Luna:lab studio specializes in circular design and derives its inspiration from the natural world, where the concept of waste is non-existent, all nutrients are in constant circulation within their respective symbiotic systems and all forms are highly functional. We design directly with our materials and allow their qualities to guide our design process, which we believe is an essential part of intelligent making. We strive to become masters of our material inventions and to reflect the craftsmanship in the final designs. The products made of Luna:lab materials are produced in accordance with cradle-to-cradle principles and come with a thought-through life cycle. 

BEER GLOW

beer glow - let there be light!

BEER GLOW is a collection of lamp shades designed to bring the luminous qualities of PIVO FLEX to life. The lamps feature clean conical shape and an innovative zip-like intelocking fastener, which means they don't need disassembly and can be easily put back into our manufacturing process to make more PIVO FLEX at the end of their life.

The lamps come in two sizes and are available to order - please enquire by emailing us!

luna:lab THE BEER SERIES

luna:lab THE BEER SERIES

We have created a series of products using our in-house developed materials PIVO FLEX and PIVO BOARD. THE BEER SERIES range is designed for use at the opposite end of beer brewing - beer drinking!

Great compostability of PIVO FLEX and PIVO BOARD as well as the materials' mechanical qualities have led Luna:lab to look into designing a collection of disposable cutlery and food wraps / plates for the use at festivals. This series of products forms a wholesome flow of materials within the beverage industry and connects the producer with the user through a consumable artefact produced from the original resources - spent grains, hops and sediment. The cutlery features clean, geometric shapes guided by the minimal production methodology. Flower seeds are included in each batch of the disposables and can be composted along with the discarded items on site leaving flower beds on the festival grounds instead of over spilling bins - imagine that! 

PIVO BOARD has also been used to make coasters which creates yet another closed-loop relationship within the beverage industry. The coasters' grainy surface playfully echoes the golden tones of the beer in the glass above it enhancing the experience of sipping on a pint of you favourite brew! The coasters feature simple geometry in order to minimise the amount of off-cuts during manufacturing. They can be branded through mould embossing, laser engraving or ink printing.

WHAT IF HUMAN HAIR COULD REPLACE CARBON FIBRE?

WHAT IF HUMAN HAIR COULD REPLACE CARBON FIBRE?

luna:lab THE HAIRY MATTERS

luna:lab THE HAIRY MATTERS

Luna:lab strives to push boundaries of our materials through design and with our HAIR BOARD we demonstrated that bio materials are capable of being as functional as carbon fibre. The first object out of THE HAIRY MATTERS series is a dressing table stool - Wiggy. The stool's soft curves and corners are not only very pleasing to touch and look at but are integral to the stability and rigidity of this piece of furniture. Wiggy's sculptural shape is made of one piece of HAIR BOARD manifesting off-cut free and one step production process. Luna:lab was able to achieve this thanks to incredible mouldability of HAIR NON-WOVEN into the mould prior to the final step of heat pressing. Its seat is slightly concaved for an extra touch of comfort when sitting down whilst brushing your locks. THE HAIRY MATTERS family of objects is expecting further additions of beauty salon purpose designed and build pieces of furniture including wall mounted / free standing mirrors, shelves, reception desks and hair brushes.
