As we watch the lowly incandescent bulb fade into the dark for more energy efficient alternatives, there is one designer ready to canonize the dying bulb into retro status. Designed by Vienna-based Maciej Chmara, the Sympathy for the Bulb Lamp offers a new place to screw in your CFLs and LED replacements, all with a tongue-in-cheek cutout design referencing the “classic” lightbulb. Flat-packed within cardboard, this simple wood lamp is easily transportable and can be setup in a snap!

Bare bulbs are ugly. Bare CFLs, doubly so.
