Glowing Wooden LED Bulbs from Ledon

Ledon’s limited edition wooden LED bulbs appear as opaque solid wooden globes incapable of emitting any light, which makes the transition into a warm glowing bulb all the more stunning.

The bulbs were created in partnership with young Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada, who designed the bulbs using a traditional Japanese wood carving technique known as Rokuro. According to Fukusada, he wanted to design bulbs that would emit a warm glow similar to torch lights. The handmade bulbs are painstakingly carved by turning pine on a lathe until the bulbs are only 2-3 millimeters thick. Ledon’s press release claims century old pine logs were hollowed out in the process of making the bulbs.

A LED light is then placed inside the shell with a casing made from aluminum. LED was chosen to create the effect of a glowing torch, since the light source has lower thermal dissipation and is less likely to damage the wooden bulb from excessive heat.

The Wooden Light Bulb design won the Kyoto Renaissance design competition.  The complicated development process gives the bulbs a hefty price tag of EUR 2,000 (US $2,700).
