Japanese artist Ryosuke Fukusada has created a wooden light bulb using an ancient technique called ‘rokuro’. By wrapping an LED light bulb in a thin layer of wood, Fukusada’s bulb was launched recently at New York Design Week.
The bulb’s LED lighting creates only a small amount of heat, meaning it will not catch alight. A recyclable aluminum socket works with the wood to create a sleek, modern and sustainable design, which recently received an award at the Kyoto Design competition. The bulb is currently being developed.
