Milan 08: Dutch designer Pieke Bergmans presented several new project in Milan earlier this month, including these Light Blubs. Part of her on-going Design Virus series, Light Blubs are hand-blown crystal light bulbs containing LEDs. See our stories on Bergmans' Mirror Virus and Vitra Virus from Milan last year. Here's some info from Bergmans: --
These modern ceramic light sculptures are one-of-a-kind. Well-suited to modern décor, they are made of translucent porcelain, reminiscent of scrolls of parchment or sheer drapery. They sit on simple platforms of black-stained oak and range from 9” to 20” in height. For an even bigger impact, they may be used with color light bulbs.
