light bulb

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!

Flat Bulbs by Joonhuyn Kim have slim shape that allows them to be easily stacked and prevents breakage.

Vaka concept by Ian Bach combines a designer light tree with mobile light bulbs. The bulbs are made from silicon and are rechargeable, meaning that they can be removed from a tree and will still work.
