designer's own words:Old, scratched and unwanted CDs are accumulating in our lives. The disc-o-lamp recycles and repurposes these CDs to create a glowing ambient lamp. Begin with an 'empty' light and add CDs as they accumulate. The final product holds 50 'unwanted' CDs. The lamp itself is made from recycled high density polyethylene and uses a highly energy efficient and safe 9 watt LED light tube.
