This year has been a big one when it comes to new bulb innovations and re-imagining of lighting in your average home. As consumers are rethinking their lightbulb purchasing habits, energy savings and use, designers are also using technology to give home interior lighting a new look.
One distinct example comes from Paris based designers who have used 3D printing for light fixtures that create dramatic lighting effects– which could work especially well with colored and standard LEDs.
“Linlin and Pierre-Yves say the plastic is heat resistant and can stand up to an incandescent bulb, although they recommend using LED bulbs instead. Colored LEDs would probably make the effect even more striking.”
Manufacturing methods like 3D printing are now inherent to design concepts and prototype building. The merger of design and technology is likely to become a bigger factor when it comes to development of new products, and manufacturers and designers who make the most of this combination are sure to capture the attention of consumers, specifically those seeking something a little bit different and innovative.
Do you think fixture design could actually help boost the prevalence of LED bulbs?
