Pieke Bergmans: Blubs
Words cannot possibly express how much I love these 'Light Blubs' by Dutch designer Pieke Bergmans. A Blub is, in her own words, "a light bulb that has gone way out of line. Infected by the dreaded Design Virus, these Blubs have taken on all kinds of forms and sizes you wouldn't expect from such well behaving and reliable little products. Nevertheless, they seem to be enjoying their new free existences." These charming characters use LEDs and recently made their debut at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan.
