US Government Allows Extremely Toxic Substances, Including Industrial Waste, to be Used as Fertilizers and a Drinking Water Additive. Smokers need to be aware that American tobacco farmers are legally allowed to use phosphate fertilizer made from rock containing uranium.
The conception of the Lamela started with the material it is made of: used 4mm MDF. This material, considered industrial waste, was used as a bottom layer for a 3-axis cnc milling machine that cuts different types of sheet material. It has a structure on one side that is the result of multiple milling operations. Adding light to the unique pattern gives the material so much more value, it was meant to match. That's why we thought this was an opportunity to design a unique product.
