Two years ago, a small London-born design label set out against all odds to build the world’s very first designer LED light bulb. Faced with some stiff competition from much larger brands, our friends at Buster + Punch emerged triumphant when, just last week, they beat their competitors to market with the launch of the BUSTER BULB – a complete package of brains and beauty.
The magic happens at the bulb’s core, where a finned resin light pipe directs warm white illumination diffusely to the sides while simultaneously concentrating it down for a more focused spot light effect. Dimmable and energy efficient to boot, each 3W bulb consumes 1/20th the energy of the standard light bulb and lasts seven times as long – with a life span of up to 5 years. As for transitioning your fixtures into the future – the BUSTER’s E27 screw base provides an easy swap out with your old incandescents.
While the BUSTER BULB takes its cues from the classic teardrop shape of the Edison, it pushes the design envelope by offering GOLD, SMOKED, or CRYSTAL glass options and a special satin metallic finish which renders each colorway looking as beautiful on as it does off.
Bravo Buster + Punch for helping to render an ever more intelligent and beautiful future through design. The BUSTER BULB is now available worldwide through the Buster + Punch online shop.
* While the BUSTER BULB is currently certified for use throughout Europe, it is slated to launch a North American version later this year.
