Alice et Loic les créateurs de RIF, luminaires made in France et écoresponsables

Story of RIF

HISTOIRES FRANCAISES is very pleased to present the creations of RIF.

RIF is a French brand of eco-friendly lighting. The name RIF is inspired by 3 words that give the DNA of the brand: Rêver/Dream, Instiller/Instill, Fabriquer/Make. These 3 mysterious letters can also be read as Respectful, Inventive and French, or RIF as Riffelmacher, the family name of the creator Alice and her husband Loïc because RIF is also a beautiful couple story.

RIF is therefore both design and environmentally friendly lighting. Alice wanted to work on "a decoration that is friendly with the planet". The lights are entirely made of sustainable materials. They are designed and prototyped in their workshop in Marseille, and then each product is made near Limoges.

In terms of style, at RIF we have selected the Wrecking Ball collection of table lamps, in the shape of a ball, in wood or recycled plastic. Elegant lamps that offer a delicate lighting while playing with light. Their particular cut allows them to project rays of light, like the rays of the sun.

As for the material, the products are made of MDF and are therefore created from recycled wood or wood scraps. The raw MDF panels (material made from wood scraps) come from Corrèze; and the wood used to make them comes from the cleaning of the surrounding woods and forests. RIF categorically refuses to cut down trees to manufacture its products, as an ethical principle. The company innovates and explores new materials such as recycled plastic, also from the cosmetics industry. The lights are then manufactured near Limoges.

Moreover, the products are delivered in recyclable and plastic-free packaging to be an actor of this eco-responsibility. The brand is 100% Made in France and FSC certified (environmental label that certifies the wood comes from forests or plantations managed in a responsible and sustainable manner).

RIF promotes a long life cycle for its collections. All products are guaranteed for 2 years from the date of purchase. Of course if you decide to dispose of them, you can drop them off at a collection point and the wood will be recycled!

So don't hesitate, light up 100% made in France and eco-friendly!
