…but where is the bulb? ‘archetype’ can be considered as a symbolic passage to LED lighting. its classic silhouette, which is body and lamp source at the same time, screws intothe lamp holder like a traditional incandescent bulb, even though it features a modern diode technology.’archetype’ draws from the traditional scandinavian design, adopted by danish company goodmorning technology for luceplan.

its exterior structure is in painted aluminium and the internal diffuser is in transparent polycarbonate. integrated between these two elements is a warm white LED and an E27 screw attachment for connection to any standard-size traditional bulb holder.

this reflector-only version is combined with a rose, cable and bulb holder for ceiling connection. the floor-standing version has an aluminium structure for vertical height adjustment.

the energy saving LEDs are characterized by long life, high output and no maintenance cost, a reflection luceplan’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

‘archetype’ was on presentation at luceplan as part of milan design week 2010.

  • No, Neil’s right…this thing is a one-liner. “Oh, it’s not actually a reflector for the traditional incandescent lamp, even though it (gasp) looks like one! And, we took the small size advantages and flexibility of LED lighting…and IGNORED them, making this lamp both dimmer and bulkier than it needed to be!”

    wow, some great leap forward there.

  • It’s a stupid lamp. “But where is the Bulb ?” Where’s the mystery ? The lamp is big enough to fit a (traditional) incandescent bulb, but LucePlan have put in a flat ring of LEDs instead. So why keep the shape, size and volume of a shade for an incandescent bulb when these no longer have any bearing ? It’s not particularly pretty and it doesn’t produce the same light as an incandescent lamp. So why make it look like one ?
    Dumb dinosaur design.
