COLORISED, a trading platform for the interior design industry specializing in the stretch ceiling sector with fabric and film, is introducing a new proprietary collection of exclusive lamps. Each ECO Lamp not only offers unique shapes and colors not found anywhere else, but has also been made from biodegradable and compostable materials: polylactide, polylactide doped with wheat bran, and thermoplastic starch, which is fully compostable at home.
All ECO Lamps offered by COLORISED are fully biodegradable under industrial conditions or compostable at home. Only certified bioplastics produced by Polish companies that are leaders in the European plastics processing market – Grupa Azoty, Spectrum Group and ROSA PLAST – are used in their production.
ECO Lamp – a product “made in Poland”
To emphasize the Polish origins of ECO Lamps, their nomenclature uses the Esperanto language, created in 1887 by Ludwik Zamenhof – an ophthalmologist of Jewish origin who was nominated eight times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
ECO Lamp collection have been grouped into two main categories:
- Kolora Spectro – lamps characterized by a wide range of colors, offering a unique lighting effect when they are turned on – unusual geometric patterns appear on the surface
- Brilanta Brano – lamps made of GF3D Branfill3d material, based on wheat bran, which is a waste product in the production of pasta and other flour products.
Each ECO Lamp is equipped with a fabric-coated power cord in a color that coordinates with the color of the lamp (e.g. yellow-pink, navy blue, brown-wheat bran color). An LED bulb is also added to the lamps. The lamps are offered in amounts of several tens of euros – depending on their size and shape.
COLORISED offers ECO Lamps, in two unique materials among others:
- Thermoplastic starch – a material that is fully compostable at home or when buried in the soil; it is patented and developed by Grupa Azoty – Poland’s largest chemical company
- GF3D Branfill3D, a composite material combining polylactide made from corn starch with wheat bran; was developed by GREENFILL3D, a Polish startup creating innovative solutions based on natural materials; in 2022 the company won a number of awards and prizes for its innovative advertising stands, made from a material based on wheat bran, which is a waste product from pasta production; the project was carried out for the Lubella brand belonging to the MASPEX Group.
ECO Lamp – sustainable development in the lighting industry
“ECO Lamps open up completely new possibilities in the area of implementing bioplastics in the sphere of everyday applications,” – said Pawel Slusarczyk, president and marketing manager of COLORISED – “we can create any shape, finish and color variant of the lamps depending on the customer’s expectations. Moreover, the use of fully biodegradable or compostable materials has a great impact on the environment. At the end of the day, the lifespan of most lamps in a domestic or institutional environment is usually several years – sooner or later every user decides to renovate and refresh the interior, and lamps are one of the “victims” of change. Traditional lamps end up in the trash – ours, especially those made from thermoplastic starch or wheat bran, will decompose in the soil reducing pollution.”
“Our business is largely based on the production of proprietary installation accessories and tools used by contractors in the interior finishing industry, such as stretch ceilings,” comments Marcin Kwapisz – vice president and commercial director of COLORISED – “the ECO Lamp project allows us to significantly expand our commercial offer and reach both individual, business and institutional customers with much more interesting products. ECO Lamps can be used in offices, hotels, restaurants or public facilities. We can customize colors and shapes, providing lamps that are unique and impossible by other methods. By adding eco-friendly materials, we create truly unique products on the market.”
