The Random Light, by Bertjan Pot for Moooi, has a cocoon-like form is crafted of durable epoxy and fiberglass. The body is a unified piece; lightbulb access and replacement is carried out though an opening in the top. Uses 1 X 100W max medium base incandescent bulb.
- We all know that changing out traditional incandescent light bulbs for compact fluorescents is a huge step towards managing energy consumption.
- Lately we've noticed a resurgent love affair with the lightbulb. Whether it's unique shades acting as a glowing showcase or the bare bulbs themselves, we dig this look.
The slightly askew bulb laid bare gives Miconos its visual interest, casting light directly from the incandescent through the transparent glass shade.
Domestic lighting is having a sculptural moment with designers eschewing accented shapes and materials in favor of surprising silhouettes. Put aside your task lamps, Edison bulbs, and cloth lampshades in favor of sleeker, more airy modes of illumination that use a light touch with heavy metals (bronze, brass) and new-fangled LED bulbs in place of their energy-gobbling cousin, the incandescent.
- The standard pear-shaped incandescent bulb thatmost of us have been using for ages has a bad reputation among environmentalists as an energy hog.
- The annual London Design Festival attracts both emerging and established creatives, who gather each fall to present their latest creations.
