Millions upon millions of acres of rainforest are destroyed each year, so the 'Light of Hope' light bulb looks to draw attention to this fact as a reminder of the impact we're having on our environment. The bulb features an ornate design that is created using the charcoal that has been leftover from the burning of rainforest as a bittersweet reminder of what's happening.

More people are becoming aware of our practices when it comes to deforestation, which has prompted a stronger focus by designers to reinforce the ways that we are impacting the environment. The 'Light of Hope' light bulb is an example of this and is the design work of Mitja Schneehage, Michael Wilde and Sofia Christidou.
