Sustainable, Stylish Lighting from Gantri in California

Craftsmanship meets luminosity in Gantri lighting, founded by Ian Yang, an SF-based entrepreneur who’s on a mission to bring smart, sophisticated, well-priced lighting to design-forward customers by working with international design studios. “We believe good design and great lighting enhance our everyday lived experience,” he says. Gantri offers table lighting (“From top creators to the top of your table”), floor lamps, wall lights (installed in minutes—no electrician needed), and clamp lighting, all available in a range of 10 sophisticated earth-inspired colors, from Sand (beige) to Canyon (dark rust) to Forest (dark green), and feature dimmable museum grade LEDs for a warm, inviting ambience.

And when it comes to sustainability, Yang and his team have pioneered  a 3-D printed manufacturing process, using high-performance plant-based polymers, which means each light is made to order, reducing unnecessary waste. “We manufacture locally and on-demand in the heart of California; this process reduces inefficiencies without sacrificing quality—less waste, better lighting,” they say.
