Re:Use Re:Build Re:Place


Give old luminaires new life.

With a circular mindset, we can reuse and recycle resources in a more sustainable and long-term manner. With our Re:Furbish initiative, yesterday's designs and technologies are updated with today's advances and innovations to meet tomorrow's demands.

Update and reuse

With Re:Furbish, we can renew, reuse and rebuild your existing lighting solutions. With new LED luminaires and, for example, intuitive lighting control from Organic Response, you not only save energy but also have more opportunities to adapt lighting to your company‘s needs, and improve both light quality and light comfort. 


Safety first

We have never compromised on safety, and this is no exception. After a luminaire has been rebuilt, it is tested according to current standards to ensure that it is in compliance. We always focus on high quality in our lighting solutions, regardless of if they’re old or new.

Use our calculator to see your CO₂-savings

Different materials leave different footprints in the environment. When we rebuild, update or reuse existing luminaires, we do not unnecessarily consume the Earth's resources. With this awareness, we want to build the luminaires of the future in a more sustainable way.

Below you can drag the slider to see for yourself,
how a small change can make a big difference in emissions.

The calculations are based on kg CO2e/kg material (steel, plastic, aluminium). For plastic, an average value has been used. In making a general calculation, you can assume that an average office pendant weighs about 2-3 kg.

Life cycle assessment

A life cycle assessment (LCA) is a thorough analysis of how different products, or services, affect the environment throughout its life cycle. With this as a basis, we have identified the recycling of materials in lighting solutions as an area where we can make a big difference. Read more about how we work with life cycle assessments, as well as our results and insights we’ve gained.



A product – from grave to cradle

The idea of renovating or rebuilding old luminaire housings to save materials and energy is an area that is rapidly growing. And sometimes what an old luminaire needs can be just a little love and engineering skills – to be able to shine brightly once again. Meet two of Fagerhult's project managers, Johan Ericsson and Peter Eklund, who love taking on a challenge. Preferably those that are absolutely impossible.
