The tower series features long cyclintrical columns of light. Accented with a series of black metal rings, this lamp meshes well with a wide variety of décor styles and tastes.
The outer, rope-like, portion of the lamp is crafted from abaca fiber, whereas, the inner portion of the lamp is crafted using a handmade abaca paper. The abaca fiber portion of the lamp has its own wrought iron frame, guaranteeing this lamp is very sturdy. The abaca plant is fast growing and resembles the banana. The species matures in about 18 to 24 months and consists of 12 to 30 stalks from a central root system. Each stalk grows between 12 and 20 feet high. Different parts of the plant make different products such as abaca rope, twine, or paper. Abaca is special in that it will re-grow from the same root system after being cut and it can be grown within the rainforest without destroying critical habitat.
The inner diffuser paper is applied to a heat resistant lamp backing, similar to the backing found on any standard lamp. The frame is constructed of wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable; It’s powder coated in order to ensure the longevity of its color. 10” diameter x 72” tall and uses 4 x 40 watt medium base bulb, compact florescent bulb highly recommended.
