Product Monday: Superdupertube Hemp Luminaire

 

Superdupertube is a linear LED luminaire with a housing made of hemp, considered a highly sustainable fiber. The product is a collaboration between a Swedish lighting manufacturer named ateljé Lyktan, and the product design firm Snøhetta.

Hemp ended up being selected because of its durable fibers and minimal environmental impact, reducing CO2emissions by over 50% compared to traditional aluminum luminaires. One innovation is utilizing a material based on hemp, extruded in an existing extrusion process. Strong hemp fibers are combined with PLA (polylactic acid) material derived from sugarcane starch for desired material performance. The product’s color has natural variations based on the different hemp crops utilized. Superdupertubes are available in two color temperatures: 4000K (tuned to 3800K ambient light) and 3000K (tuned to 2800K ambient light).
