Light Blubs Special Editions by Pieke Bergmans

Milan 09: in Milan last month Dutch designer Pieke Bergmans presented a new collection of Light Blubs as part of her ongoing Design Virus project.

The lighting comprises hand-blown bulbs containing LEDs.

This year they were presented attached to pendant and desk lamps, and resting on old office furniture.

Light Blubs

‘special editions’

A unique series of Light Blubs designed by Pieke Bergmans. Bergmans ‘infected’ some light bulbs last year, which means melted bulbs came dripping down from the ceiling…

This year the infection did not cure. It’s on the rampage with no cure in sight. Even the bulbs in the safe haven of their lamps are not spared. Their DNA has mutated, more grotesque, more mutilated than ever before.

Like with an infection, the older the product the more susceptible it is: old and tired lamps surrendering their bulbs to gravity. A desk lamp giving up on life, its last gasp forming the bulb. Office cupboards, made superfluous by digital databases, prop up Light Blubs with care and love. A lamp ejects her Light Blub in desperation.

These symptoms are unique, their phenomena unpredictable. The Light Blubs accepting their fate and the pull of gravity.
