85 Lamps: Time to Retire

We love Droog Design-"The products they select need to combine functionality and conceptual clarity with a keen expression of awareness of cultural and technological references and contexts" and we love design site Funfurde. What we don't love is 85 lamps at 15 watts each, or 1275 watts hanging over our dining room table. In any other form of lighting besides incandescent that would light an entire house; in our kitchen we could cook dinner. In Droog's defense it was designed in 1993; however it is still for sale. TreeHugger has suggested Ban the Bulb; Perhaps it is also time to Ban 85 Bulbs as well, at least until they bring out the LED version. ::DroogDesign via ::Funfurde
