New Products Coming Soon
Debuting with Monmade — April 2023
During Green Leap, Margaret sought to deepen SPACAPAN’s sustainability by pursuing a lighting product rooted in regional sustainability. While she is conscious of the environmental and health impacts of her blown-glass processes, Margaret enhanced the sustainability of her products by using 100% upcycled glass components with Reilluminate. Glass bottles are cut, ground, and then polished to create each pendant shade. Integrating glass that does not need to be reshaped with heat further reduces SPACAPAN’s energy consumption.
“I want to make sure I am approaching sustainability holistically. In addition to developing a product that meets a handful of sustainable criteria, I would like to make sure the rest of my business is well-informed and is pointed in the right direction to do the same. I want to think about sourcing, shipping, labor, manufacturing, local impacts, and scalability.”

Starting with glass olive oil and water bottles—often hard-to-recycle items within regional waste streams—Margaret has transformed mundane items into elegant designs. Following the first iterations of Reilluminate (shown above), Margaret is now refining her designs by elongating the metal and glass details. The finalized products will debut in April at our premiere Green Leap design industry event.
