Bergman’s "Special Editions" Bulbs

Bergman’s “Special Editions” Bulbs

As if infected by a disease, designer Pieke Bergmans’ Light Bulbs slump and die away slowly as they add a warm, amorphous glow to the space in which it’s placed.  Part of her aptly-titled project “Design Virus,” these bulbs spill like ooze from their power sources onto surfaces, clearly victims of a lighting pandemic.  The bulbs themselves are glass-blown to fit certain surfaces and contain LED lights within.  Although these lights might only work in very specific contexts, I could see a fantastic bathroom design where it appears that the bulbs have literally melted onto the shower and counter surfaces.  Several of these lights, creatively placed, may be an interesting accent for an outdoor garden as well! – via
