Forget about light bulbs and brace yourself for exciting interior decor designs. After the recent breakthrough of light-emitting wallpaper, we have the world's first active light-emitting glass by Saazs.

Saaz uses planilum technology to create this innovative glass which can be incorporated into shelves and tables and other furniture, providing an elegant understated ambient lighting solution.

According to the makers, the average lifespan of the glass plate is 50,000 hours, which is about 20 years of domestic use. To make things even better 90% of the design can be recycled, making it very eco friendly.

The product currently has an efficiency halfway between a conventional bulb and a toxic neon light but Saaz is aiming to improve the light efficiency to reach the neon light efficiency without its toxicity within 3 years.
