Gantri Teams Up With Ammunition to Bring You Showstopping and Sustainable Lighting

Gantri Teams Up With Ammunition to Bring You Showstopping and Sustainable Lighting

By Samantha Daly
The three new collections of 3D-printed table, wall, and floor lights start at $148.

If you live in San Francisco, you may have seen the ads pasted around town over the last few years touting images of slick, 3D-printed lamps that promise functionality and form without costing a fortune. The culprit? Gantri, a startup that collaborates with innovative designers to bring  sustainably-produced, high quality lighting to the market. Gantri is unique in that they use digital manufacturing to cut down on waste and keep prices low for the thrifty, design-minded consumer. All of their lighting products are 3D-printed using a custom blend of plant-based PLAs. On top of all that, all their lights are produced on-demand in a sustainable factory in San Leandro, California.

Gantri tapped San Francisco–based Ammunition to design three new collections: Gio, Signal, and Carve. The results are intricate, organic, and unexpected forms that reflect the brand’s commitment to radical design.

"Ammunition has an incredible reputation for creating thoughtful, beautifully crafted products that inspire both consumers and designers. We were thrilled to bring the studio’s process and philosophy to the Gantri platform with lighting collections that offer an amazing level of quality, detail, and expression." 

—Gantri founder and CEO Ian Yang


The Gio Collection

The Gantri Gio Table Light.

The Gio Collection is inspired by Italian lighting designs of the 1970s that sought to remake and refresh historic archetypes through new materials and processes. The unique character of the Gio Collection came to life by manipulating and rationalizing classical geometric elements so they interact with each other in playful ways. The elegant shapes connect and merge seamlessly, with a material presence and character found commonly in crafted ceramic objects. The familiar yet uncommon forms give the lamps sculptural qualities that stand alone as interesting objects even when they are not illuminated.  

Gantri Gio Task Table Light
Gio Task Light evokes a sense of revolutionary whimsy while standing ever-ready to focus your efforts. It’s designed for the office or study, but its directional head finds ways to work well in every room in your home.
Gantri Gio Wall Light
Gio Wall Light delivers an understated dash of 70’s panache in a functional, beautiful geometric package. Mount Gio to the wall, cabinet or display case for a combination of gently diffused light and legendary style.
Gantri Gio Table Light
Gio Table Light's simple, elegant shapes connect seamlessly, for a sculptural look with no shortage of personality. It’s designed for the bedside table, but also makes a radical statement in the office, study, or on a bookshelf.


The Signal Collection

The Gantri Signal Floor Light.

The Signal Collection features louvered slats that are fused to the main body of each light through the 3D printing process. The slats were inspired by the functional aspects of exterior architectural louvers used to bring light and air inside. Here, the slats allow light to be directed intentionally, while bringing a softer feel to spaces. The simple geometry of the floor, wall, and table lights combined with the bold louver pattern gives the collection a look that is somehow both friendly and modern.

Gantri Signal Floor Light
Signal Floor Light features simple geometric shapes that work together to make a friendly, modern statement, while the louvered frame puts the emphasis on soft, warm light. It’s typically used in the living room, but works well in the office, study or kitchen as well.
Gantri Signal Wall Light
Signal Wall Light is the epitome of functional style—a classic statement that adds a dose of drama to its soft, warm light. Signal mounts easily in any room—particularly ones with objects that deserve an audience.
Gantri Signal Table Light
Signal Table Light's architectural louvers make a show-stopping statement of style. Position it on the tabletop to bring attention to anything from your work to your artwork - but don’t be surprised if it feels like the spotlight always seems to be on the piece itself.


The Carve Collection

The Carve Collection’s monolithic forms and seamless surfaces feel carved from stone rather than assembled like conventionally manufactured objects. Standing upright, the collection’s table light casts a wide, bright light to illuminate work surfaces or tasks. And when placed on its spine, it can cast light upward to create ambience through reflected light. The smooth form of Carve’s pair of wall lights contribute only a subtle ripple to wall surfaces while casting targeted light. A tall and narrow floor light rounds out the collection by producing a surprisingly bright downward beam it spite of its compact footprint and shade.  

Gantri Carve Table Light
The Carve Collection’s monolithic forms and seamless surfaces give it a sculptural feeling. Each piece has a personality and function of its own, yet the collection hangs together in a way that feels connected.

Carve Wall lights add modernist elegance and soft, perfectly-diffused illumination to any room. Their clean, sculptural silhouette contribute only a subtle ripple to wall surfaces while casting targeted light wherever it’s needed.
