Still in love with the “old school” design of the classical light bulbs, or the form factor of the new CFL light bulb does not fit the light socket you would like to use it with?
We examined high-powered LEDs instead. They use significantly less power than a CFL, can be tuned to give a pleasant color output and contain no mercury. The drawback is that high-output LEDs create heat (although not nearly as much as incandescent lights) that needs to be dissipated, or the life of the LED is greatly affected.
As our ideas began to focus on combining LEDs with a fluorescent, we sketched several forms that tried to create harmony between the two technologies. The idea of creating a separation between work and home life through the modulation of the color output drove some of our early forms. As soon as we chose to use only high-output LEDs, our forms changed significantly, rendering the old concepts no longer valid.
