For one of my school projects we are to design a light fixture. With the abundance of contemporary lighting nowadays it seems like everything has already been invented, so I decided to stick to the basics and get my inspiration for the regular incandescent light bulb. I absolutely LOVE the shape and would it be my wish, I’d lit my hole apartment with Edison incandescents. After browsing a little while I came across this compilation of light bulb inspired designs and found it absolutely amazing!
