Glancing at the first photo of the Wooden Light by Ryosuke Fukusada is not going to amaze you. It just looks like a light bulb shape created on a mill and stuffed into a socket. What’s the big deal? Flip the switch and you will see. The Wooden Light Bulb is a fully functional light bulb that started it life on a lathe to get the outer shape created in two halves. The wood is milled down to a thickness between 2-3 millimeters, making it translucent. Then, Ryosuke adds a LED light to the interior of the wood bulb before sealing it shut.
When you flip the switch, the Wooden Bulb lights with a warm glow that brings the woods grains clearly into focus. The bulb may not light your room, or even a desk, but it does provide an amazing highlight to room, or provide romantic lighting once you turn off all the other lights. Ryosuke Fukusada created the bulb in collaboration with LEDON Lamp GmbH.
