According to Lucirmás, the majority of recycled glass ends up in pavement aggregate rather than in the production or new glass. In hopes of highlighting the importance and beauty of reuse, the design studio creates unique handmade pieces using a variety of techniques such as cutting with a wet diamond blade circular saw and thermal tempering. Waste minimization is a major focus of Lucirmás, which takes an eco-friendly approach to all aspects of the product’s lifecycle from design concept to end-use.

Lucirmás recently launched a limited edition version of its LaFlor Lamp and Dama Lamp. The LaFlor Lamp, designed by Nutcreatives, combines a dark turquoise glass wine bottle with a handmade copper lampshade to create an attractive hanging lamp. The Dama Lamp Diamond uses a clear Damajuana bottle with a PEFC handmade beech timber base, on which a low-energy Plumen 001 lightbulb sits. Both products are completely recyclable and, since no glue was used, can be easily disassembled as needed.
