The Plumen 001 light bulb
The Plumen will change the way you see light bulbs forever. Not only does it have a beautifully curling design that’s unlike any other, it uses 80% less energy and lasts eight times longer than a conventional incandescent bulb. Just a few of the reasons why it won the International Design of the Year Award in 2011.

Happy Olympic tweeters to light up London Eye - Telegraph

[The team has] been commissioned to develop an intuitive algorithm to track the sentiment of British tweeters about the Olympics by EDF Energy, the official electricity supplier to London 2012, in order to create the ‘world’s first social media driven light show’, called ‘Energy of the Nation’ on the London Eye (which EDF sponsor).

If the overall sentiment is negative – the London Eye will glow purple. If it’s positive it will shine yellow and if the Twitter reaction to the Games is neutral, the wheel will emit green rays.

Light of Other Days

Both born in Switzerland in 1979, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs met in at the School of Art and Design in Zürich in 2005.  They have worked together on several different projects and often collaborate with Bernard Willhelm, the wildly innovative fashion Antwerp trained fashion designer.

This series of direct positive photographs is entitled Light of Other Days. It is testament to the imperfect capture of light that is photography.  Their work verges on the edge of photography, sculpture and installation, examining the two dimensional limitations of photography and how the placement of objects in space can lead to a fictional and humorous interplay.  Each shot is meticulously crafted, staged and lit.  

Their book, The Great Unreal (2009) lead to a show at MOMA PS1, and is a take on the cliche of the American road trip, both intelligent and absurdist.
