Wooden Light Bulb

There are certain devices that are perceived to just be simply functional and do not warrant some other form of appreciation. For example, light bulbs are usually simply there to provide lighting and nothing else. But add in something unique like what the Wooden Light Bulb has, you get something that offers more than just its function.

The Wooden Light Bulb probably aims not just to provide light to provide people with something to appreciate. This unique light bulb is made of wood instead of the usual glass bulb. This is made possible by the traditional Japanese Rokuro technique, a wooden shell that is carefully chipped until the minimum thickness is achieved. This gives the wooden shell somewhat of a translucent property that allows light to pass through, making it able to replace the usual glass bulb.

The Wooden Light Bulb comes with a LED bulb to ensure that the light produced remains cool, preventing the wooden shell from being burned. The Wooden Light Bulb is a product of Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada. It is a unique combination of traditional Japanese craft with modern technology to come up with something worth a second look. In terms of commercial availability, the Wooden Light Bulb is still under development.
