photo_situation3The evolution of the contemporary lightbulb continues with Swiss designer Renaud Defrancesco’s invention of a LED light bulb and lamp shade hybrid. Much like the decorative light bulb range from Plumen, Defrancesco’s LMP series—prototypes that were part of his industrial design graduation project at Lausanne’s École Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne (ECAL)—turns the light bulb itself into the star of the modern pendant light.

The design essentially creates a single shade+LEDs unit that screws into a traditional bulb socket, yielding a diffused, downward light source that looks like a traditional shaded pendant light. Unlike traditional light bulbs, LEDs (light emitting diodes) require no specific protective glass element, freeing Defranceso towards more inventive possibilities. “I redrew the lines of the light source protective glass in different shapes of lamp shades so that it becomes a lamp by itself,” he explains. Now, that’s thinking outside the bulb!lmp_140_miroirAmpoules-LMP-by-Renaud-de-Francesco_dezeen_banecaler_juste2amp_detaillmp_70_miroirlampe_coupe_cote3Via Dezeen
