"The answer is simple," says the young Dutch designer. "It is a light bulb that has gone way out of line. Infected by the dreaded Design Virus, these Blubs have taken on all kinds of forms and sizes you wouldn't expect from such well behaving and reliable little products."

Bergmans calls her one-of-a-kind light sculptures "unlimited edition," in that that each unique piece is made using an industrial process she developed that can be repeated until the end of time. For more on how the light blubs are created including photos of the process go to her website.

Pieke Bergmans is on display until October 25 at Tools Galerie
