Bulb Fiction is KiBiSi’s latest bright idea.
Taking the iconic incandescent bulb as departure point, KiBiSi’s new pendant light is a tribute to the incandescent bulb while also referencing the easily recognisable archetype of the movie universe.
Similar to the classic shape, the bulb has been scaled up and designed as a whole unit, which sees the socket and the bulb combined to form one shape. Even the cord has been adapted to unite it to the other elements. A thick white silicone cover works to give it extra volume.
Ideal for private homes, retails spaces or offices, Bulb Fiction consists of a hand-blown, acid-treated opal glass shade with aluminium suspension that creates a soft, organic shape. This particular form works to create the idea of an incandescent bulb, without revealing the energy-saving light source. The overall effect is one of soft, comfortable lighting.
Adding to the aesthetic appeal of Bulb Fiction is the fact that it looks equally attractive as a single lamp as it does when it is hung together in a cluster. Says KiBiSi: “The lamp makes it possible to play with the design by means of tying knots in the cord or by gathering several lamps together to form a modern chandelier.”
Furthermore: “Based on a common interest in movies this universe was chosen as an inspirational theme for the product and title underlining the iconic nature of the design.”
