Best Before products are made by hand, using thin strands of recycled paper.
This ancestral technique from Korea is one that the creators of the products wish to preserve at all costs.
The craftsmen and women cut used paper into strips, then roll them between two of their dampened fingers to form a very strong thin "cord ".
Both men and women devote themselves to this craft, but only a few "Living Treasures" continue to use the pages from old books to manufacture these works of art.
In South Korea recycling is always a priority. Today, fairtrade workshops produce the cords using plain, unbleached, recycled paper.
Strong yet elegant, this Ovni from Best Before ceiling light is an original and handmade item. Its honeycomb structure, using solids and space, produces a diffused, soft lighting effect onto surrounding walls. Supplied with lampshade, lamp fitting, red electrical cord. The material can change shape slightly, when suspended the outline may appear to be more elongated or more circular.
