A Wooden Light Bulb? You better believe it

Just when you thought you’d seen it all, someone comes along and makes a light-bulb out of the typically completely opaque material, wood.

Design Milk featured this apparent miracle yesterday. It was created by Ryosuke Fukusada, a Japanese designer based in Milan.

The lamp is created by wrapping the LED device in the wooden shell, which is chipped until ‘minimum thickness’ with the Japanese technique of ‘Rokuru’.

This piece of design is certainly ingenious – though judging from the images we have it’ll definitely be more of a mood-lighting device than one with any real function.
