Gallery: Ryosuke Fukusada Unveils Glowing Wooden Light Bulb

 

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.

    Just wondering how much the wood is goingn to absorpt the light. May dilute the whole idea of energy saving light bulbs.
