3D-printed lighting marketplace Gantri is breathing new life and light into the summer season. Today, the company announced a new collection of colors inspired by nature, and now decor aficionados officially have more creative options to choose from to illuminate their spaces

Among the six fresh finishes are: Forest (dark green), Meadow (light green), Midnight (dark blue), Sky (light blue), Canyon (dark red) and Coral. The color expansion brings Gantri’s current lineup to 10, as the currently available muted finishes include: Carbon (black), Fog (grey), Sand (beige) and Snow (white). To further expand their commitment to sustainability, they’ve begun using a water-based paint.

Along with the new selection of colors and the additional shades to be introduced later this summer, Gantri is also slated to released a new light named Suyo, Spanish for “yours.” Created by NYC-based industrial designer McKay Nilson, the lamp’s bowed head and open base is structurally symbolic of  a person in the act of “giving something to another.” The base includes a spot where you can stash some office supplies or even house an air plant. The design will be available in Coral, Sand and Fog for $168.

Known for a “sustainable, hyperefficient manufacturing” process, Gantri lights are created by independent designers and crafted to luxury standards using custom blends of polyactic acid (PLA) as a primary sustainable material sourced from natural corn starch. Combined with the water-based finishes, the PLA ensures durable, eco-friendly products.
