Gitta Gschwendtner has designed a series of ten lamps that use low-energy candle-effect bulbs.
Each lamp features a bulb set in a different material that is traditionally burned to create light and heat such as coal, oil or timber.
The series was created for Ten, an exhibition about sustainable design held at 100% Design in London last week (the Ten website has not been updated yet and currently shows last year's exhibition).
The exhibition organisers asked ten designers to each create ten products for the show.
Here is some info from Gschwendtner:
It is really obvious that we all ought to use energy-saving bulbs. Nonetheless, retailers and the general public are reluctant to make the simple switch. I believe that people are unaware of how compatible new compact fluorescents are. In fact, they are attractive in their own right.
I have designed a collection of ten lights that showcase energy efficient candle bulbs. The ‘Flame Lamps’ are a play on the type of electric lights designed to mimic a sense of cosiness and tradition with their electric flame. The different lamp bodies hint at the burning of resources.
