This collection was developed for Han Hanh, a rattan lighting producing SME in Vietnam.  The project was carried out under the umbrella of two institutions - SPIN and UNIDO. 

This collection consists of lighting elements constructed from a small diameter species which is indigenous to Vietnam. This species is called ‘garden rattan’ because unlike most rattan specieswhich grow in forests, this species is cultivated in homestead gardens.Harvesting this rattan does not endanger the forests, and it can be sustainably grown, managed and harvested.

Since garden rattan grows in North Vietnam, it is physically closer to the SME, making transport cost effective and ecological as well.

The rattan has been used in the products in the most natural manner possible i.e. without bleaching or treatment by diesel. Additionally,rattan cut offs which are waste bits of rattan, have been used in the design to add texture and as a design element.

The ‘leaf’ components can be outsourced to nearby homes for production,where women can be engaged in producing them. These can later be assembled onto the frame at a central location. This feature makes these products socially sustainable as well.
