ICFF 2009: ECCO Design Dynamic Lux Ribbon CCFL Lamp

A few years back when CFL bulbs first came out onto the scene and the media and eco-proponents were pushing the public to adopt the energy efficient lighting solutions, many people balked due to a credible criticism of the CFL technology: the light was cold and depressing. This is especially an issue worth debating when discussing task lamps to work and use a computer next to; as anyone who works in an office knows, working under fluorescent or cold CFL lighting is practically includes being put on suicide watch. We met with Eric Chan, designer of the ECCO Design and Nu-Lite Dyanmic Lux Ribbon cold cathode fluorescent lamp (what a mouthful!), a lighting solution which gives users a range of colour temperatures to choose from at a touch of a button...

The lamp's core technology, cold cathode fluorescent lighting, is the very same tech found inside LCD monitors, laptop screens, copiers, printers and scanners. The energy efficient bulbs give off a range of light warmth that emulates daylight (colder) to one that looks very similar to the recognizable glow of a regular incandescent bulb at the touch of a button. The Dynamic Lux Ribbon sort of reminds us of a modern and thin-billed sleeping pelican when closed; when opened up the light takes a handsome form and can be controlled via a touch button system that dims or warms depending upon which direction is is pressed.The bulb also has some green cred with an energy efficiency that saves up to 80% of the energy normally used with a traditional light bulb and will come in a variety of colour finishes. No word yet about pricing.
