The ECO-BULB concept plays with the icon of the light bulb.

This design offers an efficient & sustainable construction: 2 cables connect to an LED strip, attached to 2 wood pieces, which hold the paper without adhesives.

Paper might darken over time but is easily replaceable. You can use any paper or colour.

This simplicity makes ECO-BULB easy to manufacture locally from industry off-cuts. Parts are easily available, exchangeable, recyclable (The lamp is compostable, except the electrical parts).

In opposition to glaring fluorescent tubes, the paper creates a charming warm glow.

Jacob Antoni is an award-winning industrial designer, product developer, and architect. Originally from Berlin, Germany, and currently based in Vancouver, Canada, his innovative designs push the limits of convention, seeking simplicity, introducing exciting twists in form and function.
