Wooden Light Bulb by Ryosuke Fukusada
Certain objects are associated with certain materials. Like lightbulbs. It’s hard to imagine a non-glass lightbulb. But Ryosuke Fukusada has created a lightbulb made out of wood. Using traditional Japanese technique ‘ROKURO’ the designer has obtained a strip of wood so thin it lets some of the light shine through. The lightbulb is made in conventional bulb shape but it is entirely in wood with an aluminum socket.
LED bulb is gently glowing through the wooden shell creating an illusion of burning wood. The light from inside the bulb shows off the texture of wood. The unexpected use of material in a familiar object almost always makes for fascinating design. Ryosuke Fukusada’s wooden lightbulb is certainly is one of those objects.
