Bulb Reinvented!

The Eco Light is an EL coated bulb made out of paper. This simple and minimal design removes the burden of packaging and disposal of used bulbs for a better environment. Their kitsch looks up the glam quotient and make them a trendy display. As the designer puts it, “once the paper bulb is no longer useable, consumers can simply change a new paper bulb for their lamp and the old one can be recycled.”

Eco Light is a 2011 Liteon Awards winning entry.

Designer: Tien-Ho Hsu

    This is a cool idea, with a great packaging solution, but the relatively low levels of light emitted from EL would not be a suitable substitute for something as brilliant as a white-hot filament. Also, coated paper is not often recyclable.

  • Jimmy C says:

    Very clever. But how bright is it?

  • MDesigns says:

    Good job. Now build prototypes and save the world!

  • Matt S says:

    Nice concept, but I agree with the other posters that it may not be as environmentally friendly as claimed (But after reading the comp brief I can understand why that aspect was over sold.) However looking at it purely as a packaging concept its brilliant.

    One concern though is whether the bulb needs its own driver and where it will fit.

    FYI: paper burns.
