When CFLs started becoming more prominent than familiar incandescent light bulbs, their unusual shape still put off many people. Lighting manufacturers have since tried to adapt CFLs and LEDs to once again imitate the common bulb shape, however, changing lighting types and styles do inspire some artists to reimagine the experience of lighting and the structure of common light fixtures.
Some have even found a way to incorporate bulb and fixture to come together as one art piece.
“The fittingly named ‘Stalaclights’ slip over LED bulbs to give a room a cool glow. They’re a recent creation of David Graas, a product designer from the Netherlands whose work often focuses on sustainability. For this project, he wanted to exploit the nearly heatless surface of LEDs to make decor that’s half skyline, half abysmal cavern.”
What do you think of this creative mix of modern lighting décor that plays off a classic light bulb structure? Would you place one or a few in your home to create an upside down skyline?
