Sorenthia light From Studio Dunn

Then there is Asher Dunn of Studio Dunn had the greenest of credentials in his previous work shown here, but is now launching a series of incandescent lamps in his Sorenthia series. Nice to look at, but it uses T8 incandescent bulbs designed for lighting artwork; I asked Asher why, and he told me that because they screw into a standard Edison base, it doesn't need expensive approvals for the whole assembly.

But somehow designing a fixture with what must be just about the least efficient bulb on the market seems inappropriate in these times.
