Thanks to a collaboration between Bio-on (innovative company that invents and produces a new plastic material biodegradable in water) and Flos (one of the most creative italian brand for lighting products, founded by Achille Castiglioni) a new generation of lamp has come to life.
Miss Sissi model, an object whose design by Philippe Starck has become an icon in the lighting design, since its apparing on the market in 1991, today is renewed thanks to the bio-plastic PHas, naturally biodegradable in water 100%.
It is the first consumer product and design object in the world made with this innovative kind of plastic, an organic polymer obtained from the residues of sugar production from beet and cane (therefore has no impact on the food chain), does not require the use of organic solvents, is completely biodegradable in soil and water and has excellent performance .
