Lamps: the naked bulb

What is the most popular design theme ever? I suppose it is not difficult to guess. But is the bulb itself a design icon? Endlessly transformed and tortured by designers all over the world. New lightning technologies couldn't have stop the process, the bulb only gained new incarnations. Inspiring?

  10. Krystal, I think that the ice cube by Harri Koskinen could be used as a table lamp or a pendant.

  11. The confetti light reminds me a lot of a gourd. It's quite an unusual design but I could definitely see this in a minimalist designed apartment with white walls.
