London-based designer Benjamin Hubert created Heavy Lights–a line of 5mm-thin walled concrete pendant lamps–to “challenge our perceptions of materials and to counteract the current throwaway society. It is hoped that the user will learn to value concrete as a luxury commodity in line with green issues.” Manufactured by a German casting company for Decode London, Heavy Lights are available in light gray, dark gray, or off-white concrete with a red braided cable cord; £250 for the short, £230 for the tall at Foundry Light + Design.
