J.P. Meulendijks‘s clever SPARE pendant light is made from 25 incandescent light bulbs and a single energy-efficient LED bulb. The LED can be screwed into a light socket, and when the lamp is switched on the other light bulbs function as a lampshade, diffusing and spreading the light. The light is available through Plankton Station, and it’s currently part of the design collection at Design Museum Gent in Belgium.
