To quote The Smiths, there is a light that never goes out...well, conceptually, anyway. From Athens-based furniture designer Constantinos Hoursoglou comes the Bye Bye Bulb, a sort of product homage:
The minimal design aims to celebrate this iconic object of our civilization, without distractions, by placing it on a visual 'pedestal'. Using an LED light source the bulb is back-lit, creating the illusion the it emits light. It important to note that the bulb is intact, maintaining it for the ever at its original condition
BBbulb was produced in a limited edition of 130, one for every year of the bulb's existence since its invention in 1880 by Thomas Edison.
The "limited edition luminare" was designed, in tribute, after the EU banned the incandescent light bulb this past September.
