41 Artistic Light Bulbs

From Mousey LED Illuminators to Glass Bulb Sculptures

— February 21, 2012 — Eco
Artists and designers continue to pay tribute to the demise of incandescent lighting with artistic light bulbs. Be them sculptures or actual working bulbs, light fixtures and illuminated art pieces have stepped up a notch to show that people will always hold the incandescent light very close to their hearts.

From squiggly light strands to recycled light bulb terrariums, these artistic light bulbs span over various disciplines and concepts. Countries and cities may have started to ban incandescent light bulbs a couple of years ago, but the continuation of these creative endeavors show that people won't be letting go any time soon.

Lighting companies can appeal to this sentimental value of artistic light bulbs by incorporating them into their store collections.
