Inventor and designer Dominic Wilcox's 'Sound Bulb' is an illuminatingly creative way to turn vintage stereo speakers and old lighting fixtures into works of art.

The 'Sound Bulb' implements a conventional light bulb screw socket with old-school radio systems. The electricity is then redirected to travel to the radio so that your favorite tunes can be played in a funky fresh way. The 'Sound Bulb' can be hung like a ceiling light or mounted on top of a lamp fixture as a quirky design element. While an extremely bizarre pairing, the light fixtures look super neat alongside the vintage radios. A great antique-inspired find, Dominic Wilcox's 'Sound Bulb' is a clever way to display a radio rather than having it sit conventionally on a desk or a table. I prefer the hanging ceiling radios, which one do you prefer? Photo
