seeking to exude a subtle sci-fi type aura, south korean hobby:design has produced the ‘luminous bulb’. constructed from silicone with an added luminous pigment, the regular looking lights are formed using a solid, typical bulb-shaped mould. requiring absolutely no electricity to glow, the adaptable fixtures can be used in a wide range of environments. the power-free light source won’t heat up like a regular piece and can therefore be used for a variety of applications.
