Mixing traditional Japanese woodworking techniques with modern design, Ryosuke Fukusada has created a functional wooden light bulb! The unusual design was made using a technique called Rokuro, and it consists of an LED light bulb wrapped with a very thin layer of wood. Topped with a recyclable aluminum socket, this wooden LED light shines beautifully through the grain.
