Breathtaking…that's what came to mind when we saw the ruins of an old Nevada mine at sunset. The walls had been constructed of wine bottles and mud. All those old bottles arranged so perfectly and capturing the sunlight and mimicking the bottle ends with recycled steel circles of varying sizes filled with recycled glass discs. Rarely before has a design based in "old" seemed so powerfully new. Hand-forged steel has 70% or greater recycled content. Low-VOC finish. Recycled glass.

Varaluz - 70% recycled steel. 0% recycled style.
Varaluz was started to address issues the ligthing industry was shamefully ignoring. We have a reality facing us a people, as a nation, and as a world that requires us to be more responsible.
Energy efficiency certainly has an important place, but a larger impact can come from designing with responsible materials and designing out waste in the manufacturing and distribution process.
At Varaluz, most of the fixtures use steel that has 70% or greater recycled content and glass that is 100% recycled. Products use many sustainable and reclaimed materials in the glass or shades. Whenever you see the "eco-luz" designation on their products, you can be confident that the item is made with recycled or reclaimed materials – and that Varaluz is committed to preserving the earth.
The old saying goes, "One person's trash is another's treasure." We just take it to beautiful extremes.
I love this light, it's different and very pretty. Like a past review said, it's bright, I solved that by using a dimmer switch with the light but you could put in bulbs with less wattage.
I had my electrician install it and adjusting the height was very simple. I'm very happy with the light, it's different and interesting.

A showpiece that gives great ambience
The Fascination 3 Light Pendant looks terrific in our dining room, whether it's lit or not. The funky design, plus the rough finish give it an industrial modern kick (we have a 1950s split level). Three bulbs (we're using 75 watt incandescents) are bright so make sure you have a dimmer.
Why not 5 stars? Well, I'm a hard grader to begin with, so take this with as much salt as you need: it's not the easiest to hang, requiring two people (and a third to judge height was helpful), and the clips that are to be used to keep the electrical wire attached to the structural airplane wire are useless (but clear cellophane tape works fine). Also, I'm fine with the rough finish of the paint, but it wasn't apparent to me in the photos online -- just know this is not a polished looking product, more like an acid-washed jean than new denim. The other thing not clear in the photos is that not all the circles have glass in them.
As long as you are aware of what you're getting, and once it's set up, I think you'll love it. We do.
