CALABAZ is a Swedish lighting manufacturer, with a passion for sustainable design.
The company was founded by Mikael Berlin, with a long experience in design and product development in both lighting and furniture.
At CALABAZ we only work with local sub suppliers to to secure the best quality and flexibility.
Cradle to Cradle
We work with cradle to cradle methodology, which basically means that we design on the basis that it is easy to separate and recycle the different parts when product is worn.
When painting metal, we mainly use powder coating, a dry coating method where no solvent is used, which is the most gentle finish for the environment.
All of our wood comes from sustainable managed forests, and we use water based glues in the products.
The textiles do not contain flame retardants or harmful pigments. Adhesives used in production are water-based.
All packaging materials we use are of brown corrugated cardboard.
