Filament fantasies: Wooden light bulb by Fukusada Design.
Text: Detail Daily
But Ryosuke Fukusada, a Japanese designer who worked in the studio of Patrricia Urquiola, a Milan based designer, is refusing to let their memory be … well, switched off.
He has created a lamp that is apparently made from solid wood.
When the lamp is switched off it looks like solid wood, but inside is an LED source wrapped in a wooden shell that is shaved using Japanese “Rokuro” techniques until it is paper thin.
When the light is switched on, a beautiful warm glow is produced that has a touch of magic about it.
Inside the lamp we are told there is an aluminium frame that gives the product its classical form. The idea is still under development.
