With the imminent extinction of the incandescent bulb on our hands, it's no surprise that designers are addressing it with creations such as the Sympathy for the Bulb lamp. Although it serves a higher eco-conscious purpose, it's hard to let go of something that has brought so much..."light" to our lives.

Designed by Vienna-based Maciej Chmara, the Sympathy for the Bulb lamp features a cutout of the classic light bulb around the energy-saving one. This provides a more rounded glow that's reminiscent of the good ol' days. Stats for Illusionary Bulbous Lights Trending: Older & Average
