DiscO, new technology for the ceiling lamp by Catellani & Smith

 

Iconic design and new technology. To reinterpret the historic Disco halogen model Catellani & Smith has introduced a remarkable technological transformation, starting from the light source.

The company proposes a last generation low voltage COB LED, dimmable and with high luminous efficiency, which is housed inside a semi-cylindrically shaped element, made of polished aluminium.

In the previous model, this element worked as a reflector in connection with the R7s halogen source; in the new DiscO, it performs a totally different function, related to the LED lighting source, and plays a key role as an innovative – patent pending – heat sink.

In addition, in the new ceiling lamp DiscO the circular disc of the halogen model is replaced by an oval-shaped disc of 75×50 cm, as the name of the lamp recalls in the final capital O which summarizes its evolution.

Made of iron and available in white finish or in gold, silver or copper coloured leaf coating, the oval disc features a larger reflective surface in comparison to the previous model, while the characteristic “cone” in nickel-plated brass, placed at the centre of the disc, is included in this new and extraordinary LED version.
