The light bulbs of London-based Tala are designed to glow bare, organically shaped blown glass lighting fixtures inspired by an unexpected source: the naturally occurring patterns that form overhead in tree canopies, alongside a lone filament snaking around a central column, a mathematical nod to the Fibonacci sequence.
Exposed light bulb fixtures offer an interesting decorative dichotomy: they’re somewhat old fashioned when considered in the context of the history of lighting. But increasingly we’re seeing bare bulbs outfitted with LED technology, paired with modern finishes and forms, illuminating contemporary spaces in pendant, floor, or table lighting forms.
Tala’s biomimicry in light bulb form reveal a reverence for the natural world and formations, appropriately paired with a bright yet efficient LED filament that should last over 20,000 hours while still putting out between 80-120 lumens (two sizes are available). And in a lovely nod to nature, Tala has partnered with the National Forest Foundation with the aim to aid in efforts, planting 10 trees for every 200 products sold. No doubt a bright idea for an illuminated effort.
