We've featured wooden lightbulbs before, but this unique fixture from Japanese product designer Ryosuke Fukusada actually lets the light shine through the wooden casing. Using a traditional Japanese craft technique called "rokuro," Fukusada chipped away at the wooden enclosure until the material was thin enough to be illuminated. An LED device inside provides a soft, warm glow through the wood. Though the bulb is still a concept, there's no doubt it would make a beautiful accent fixture if it ever becomes a real product.
