The UK’s first fully dimmable energy efficient light bulb was launched today, as part of a Greenpeace  initiative at 100% Design London . Greenpeace commissioned top designer Jason Bruges  to create an interactive garden of light, which responds to human movement through “touch pads” dotted around the installation. This is the first lighting project of its kind in the world to use fully dimmable, compact fluorescent bulbs.
“Energy efficiency is one of the most powerful tools we have for fighting climate change, and this installation will prove that going green doesn’t mean sacrificing good design. The bulbs themselves have been nominated in the “most innovative lighting” category at the 100% Design London awards, and the installation has been moved to the front of house feature space. It’s a sure sign that the exhibition organisers have realised that they have something new and exciting on their hands.”
