The newGrowth line of lamps from CPLighting are made from 90% post-consumer recycled content and can be specified in any size and configuration from 12" to 20'. Suitable for residential, commercial, and hospitality applications, the halogen line-voltage fixtures can be used as wall accent pieces or combined to fill an entire atrium. They can also be hung from the ceiling in a mono-point installation to create a chandelier. The fixtures are made of salvaged brushed-aluminum pipe, making them light and strong enough to be placed in a cantilevered position to compensate for ill-placed ceiling electrical service or obstructions such as beams or ductwork. Designed by Christopher Poehlmann, they take a 50W JCD-type halogen bulb. cplighting.com
