Shadow Bulb by Melissa Borrell

Shadow Bulb by Melissa Borrell

A bare bulb can connote frugality, simplicity and bareness — a utilitarian object, common and disposable. But Melissa Borrell's design embellishes the bare bulb to show off its better qualities — it is, after all, a sphere of glass illuminated from the inside; kind of magical really.

The bulbs come in four designs: circles, triangles, criss-cross and spiral. We'd hope the bulbs are energy efficient, and we know the glass is hand-etched. Besides that, there are precious few details to inform the hefty price tag.
