Our circular lighting portfolio aims to preserve value and avoid waste and consist of four categories: serviceable luminaires, circular components, intelligent systems, and circular services.
- Serviceable luminaires are fixtures that are upgradable, serviceable, connectable, energy efficient, reusable, and recyclable
- Circular components are exchangeable and have recyclable parts, such as drivers, controls, and LED boards
- Intelligent systems monitor serviceable luminaires and enable preventive maintenance
- Circular services aim to prolong lifetimes and provide customers with end-of-contract options
A great example of our serviceable luminaires are our 3D printed luminaires. These luminaires have been modularly designed and can be upgraded to meet the emerging needs of customers.
Whether these needs are performance improvements (higher efficacies in lm/W or better light quality), a diverse look and feel (different housing), or a system upgrade, the modular concept facilitates these needs. Instead of replacing the whole luminaire, modules can be exchanged or added, thus preserving value and avoiding waste.
3D printing is the new, powerful tool that helps us design and manufacture customized, recyclable products for consumer and business customers.
Furthermore, a 3D printed luminaire has an up to 47% lower carbon footprint for its materials, production and logistics than its conventional equivalent. What’s more, 3D printing allows us to manufacture on demand and close to customers, reducing the carbon footprint of our freight operations. It’s even possible to print using materials that often end up in landfill, like unwanted CDs.
