LEDs offer a lot of advantages over incandescent bulbs – they’re extremely energy efficient, can last for up to 17 years, and they’re cool to the touch, since very little energy is emitted as heat. Capitalizing upon this third oft-ignored quality, the designers at D-Vision unveiled a cool little lamp composed of 97% soap at their ON/OFF exhibit during Milan Design Week. Since the bulbs radiate hardly any energy as heat, the designers were able to use soap as a lampshade material, bringing energy-efficient clean tech to a whole new level.

    Question is: is soap manufactor clean and energy efficient? Too many “eco” designers spend too much time on dazzle and so little on substance.
