Buoy lights
Buoy comes from the word buoyancy, it means the force which, around an object immersed in a liquid or gas, is opposed to that of gravity. This is the principle of flotation. Like buoys at sea, these lights are erected, floating, light and weighted. Extremely light, they reminds us that it is possible to create large objects while using as little material as possible. For example, the largest lamp of all, 220 cm high, weighs only 2828 grams. Of these 2828 grams, only 1483 grams of plastic were used. The interest of 3D printing is to be able to control at any time the stage of production and to use only the strictly necessary.

Graduated from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in the Netherlands and then re-established in France since 2019, Lucas Zito is a designer whose practice focuses on an in-depth study of ecological and recyclable materials combined with new technologies. His work is specialized in the design of lights through 3D printing with plastic produced from corn starch, manufactured in Europe. His approach concerns both aesthetics and functionality, in the most eco-responsible way possible and the perspectives of his practice evolve according to his social environment as well as his convictions.
