Flat Bulb – pure style and inspiration
Since 1875, when Thomas Edison created the first commercially practical incandescent lamp every kid knows that the light bulbs are round shaped. The conventional re-design of the electric bulb from the Korean Designer Joonhuyn Kim is turning on 360’ the good old concept. Unlike the ordinary bulb, the shape is flat with 1/3 reduced volume and because of the slim design it easily fits in right-angled box, thus way preserving breakage.
(you really don’t want to byte a bulb)
Joonhuyn Kim work was on exhibition on 100% Design Tokyo 2008.
