Catellani & Smith – DiscO

May 14, 2020

Catellani & Smith presents DiscO, the new ceiling lamp that reinterprets the historic ‘Disco’ halogen model, yet respects its original design. The transformation carried out from a technological point of view starts from the light source, a latest 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. The circular disc of the halogen model is replaced by an oval-shaped disc of 75 x 50cm, as the name of the lamp recalls in the final capital ‘O’ which summarises 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. Finally, the characteristic ‘cone’ in nickel-plated brass, placed at the centre of the disc, is included in
this new LED version.
