If you like the portability of the Phillips LED Candle light, but want something a bit “sweeter,” check out Nick Foley’s Pear Light. Custom made from hand-forged steel, this tree of light comes bearing fruit with rechargeable LEDs that allows you to take the lights with you down dark hallways. Once “picked” from the tree, each pear stays illuminated for about an hour. To bring it back to life, just place it back on the tree, where it will recharge for your night-viewing pleasure.

Each pear light is ripe with 10 ultra bright LEDs and rechargeable batteries that stay connected to its power source through ultra-strong rare earth magnets. One thing’s for sure, not only does Nick Foley’s light bring a bright new twist to an old design, this is by far the most aesthetically pleasing recharging station that we’ve ever come across, ensuring constant use that will keep it out of basements and broom closets. No information has been given regarding the production of the Pear Light, but the notion of the hand-forged steel leads us to believe that any price tag will be hefty.

    I love all the cool led art objects that are coming to market. I think the technology is really amazing and will lead to some pretty cool stuff.

    I think I would be more likely to point out that lightbulbs look like pears. Great design.

    Why does it get mention on this website? Hand forging is not a viable manufacturing solution.

    Someone at Inhabitat googled LED.

    Beautiful art piece– doesn’t need to be so literal.

    They… look like lightbulba. A lot like them, at least.

    You could show this image to someone who has trouble seeing things clearly, and they’d go, “I never knew lightbulbs grew on trees!”

    This is really cool. I love this design! I actually e mailed the artist to see what the cost would be if he were to sell it. :)
