History suggests that over twenty inventors worked toward the creation and design of the light bulb. Of these, Thomas Edison’s version was the most efficient. We are not here to dispute any claims but to appreciate the various forms and representations it has taken. Coming to the present times (and a bit into the future), let’s look at ten creative re-inventions of this light source.
10) LED Light Bulb by Frog Design
Designed to look just like an incandescent bulb, this “Trojan” has all the goodness of an LED but wears the original design. Featuring an aluminum socket plus the same warm color of a Light Bulb, this LED gives you energy savings and a life span of 30+ years.
9) (de)light by Cristina Ferraz Rigo
Adding fluidity to light, this concept looks at pouring out the illuminant into various conventional components like the bulb.
8 ) SoundBulb by Hoang M Nguyen, Poom Puttorngul & Anh Nguyen
SoundBulb is a multi-tasking bulb. It’s got the lights to illuminate plus speakers to stream in the music. Talk about hardwork’in!
Like the coconut tree nothing should go waste, all should be recycled. Sticky Lamp is just that. A creative way to illuminate your space and make use of the packaging that comes with it.
6) Flat Lightbulb by Joonhuyn Kim
This is what you get when you send a light bulb on a diet! I wonder if it was a low-carb or Atkins!

Who needs to dress up the walls in pain when you can have the wild and colorful Accustica
