You might think you’ve seen a lamp like this before. But you haven’t. “Disc”, designed by Dos Architects and produced by Örsjö, is not only the first electric fitting in Sweden, but the first in Scandinavia, to get the ecolabel The Swan. It is, of course, made for low-energy bulbs, and part of the metal and glass it is made of, is reused. “Disc” is also designed to simplify the process of separating the glass from the metal once it’s ready for the garbage dump. Or rather, once it’s ready to become a new product.
