What is circular lighting?

Circular lighting is the transition from the light bulb as we know it today to a system, where light bulbs retain part of their value even after use or broken. With circular lighting a light bulb is reused, repaired, upgraded, and the parts that cannot undergo repairs or upgrades are recycled. Circular lighting allows for a longer product life cycle, cost savings, reduced waste and environmental harm.

Comparison Model of lighting

Traditional Linear Lighting

With the traditional linear model, we extract raw materials constantly in order to constantly produce. The life cycle of a lightbulb starts at the manufacturing and after it is used by the consumer, ends in the trash. This method only works if we consider that we have infinite access to raw materials. Once the product is used, it has no worth and become waste.

Circular Lighting

Our circular lighting system gives each product a longer life cycle, we reduce waste by looking at a product as a raw material bank.  Once we have your lightbulb back, we can easily repair it, reuse its components, or upgrade the light in order to give it a second life.
