Artist Ryosuke Fukusada’s ‘Wooden Light Bulb’ is an exceptional piece of art that is as functional as it is beautiful. Fukusada’s Wooden Light Bulb is made using real wood and an LED bulb. The wood is shaped into a lightbulb through a process known as rokuro. Rokuro involves turning the wood in a lathe to create a sheet that is smooth, symmetrical, strong, flexible and thin.

When not in use, the Wooden Light Bulb looks exactly like its namesake. Turning on the light bulb creates an impressive and artistic display of color and light, making the bulb look as if its engulfed in flames. The best thing about this bulb is that it’s green, as the wood is biodegradable, and the socket is made from recyclable aluminum.
