Biography:
High Society is a creative manufacturing Startup founded in 2015 and based in South-Tyrol, Italy. Through a compression-mold technique, we craft unique lighting pieces made out of leftovers coming from the hemp, wine, and tobacco production. Our commitment is to recover a genuine connection between mother nature and human beings through the powerful language of design. In response to a growing demand for sustainable and ecological furniture, the Highlight lamps collection wants to give its contribution to environmental issues. Our lighting collection intends to highlight the importance of evaluating waste as a primary resource. Only ecological and harmless substances are involved in the process.
