Amsterdam-based designer Frederike Top just unveiled her latest work – and it’s literally brilliant. Reflected Sequence is a series of reflective mobiles that use geometric panels and LED lights to cast colorful, ever-changing reflections. Top creates her striking pieces by stringing together panels of semi-transparent acrylate covered in iridescent foil. The series consists of hanging mobiles, table lamps, and window danglings illuminated by LED bulbs .

The result is a dynamic, ever-changing light source that never casts the same light twice. + Frederike Top

Comments Off on Stickbulb’s new Boom LED lamp is made of reclaimed wood from NYC water tanks

Almost five years have passed since New York-based design firm Rux Design unveiled their revolutionary StickBulb lighting system , which was inspired by destroyed buildings. Now, the innovative designers are back with a new, bolder LED lamp called Boom that’s made out of reclaimed Redwood from dismantled NYC water tanks. Rux’s new Boom lamps were officially unveiled this week at the Milan Furniture Fair . The series follows up on the designer’s quest to repurpose materials from architectural destruction. Boom is made of reclaimed wood taken from dismantled NYC water tanks. Years of exposure to the harsh NYC climate on one side and water on the other has given the wood a rich, unique coloring. Related: 15 brilliant green lamps for a brighter future The reclaimed wood pieces are shaped to fit linear LED bulbs that are then connected to an elegant brass core. The lighted sticks shoot out at different lengths and emit light from different directions, creating a sense of “exploding light.” According to Stickbulb Co-Founder and RUX Founder Russell Greenberg, the team’s lighting systems take a revolutionary approach to green design : “Our fixtures are literally born from the destruction of architecture. We celebrate this energy and history in the form and function of our designs.” Boom debuted in a temporary exhibit at Archiproducts Milano on April 4th during Milan Design Week . + Stickbulb + Rux Design

The Story Pod features black vertical slats along its outer walls, creating the impression of a solid structure, yet when passersby get a little closer they can see into the transparent polycarbonate sheet and into the peaceful haven. Benches fold outward with two of the walls and interior shelving provides space for bookworms to take refuge. Visitors from a nearby riverside trail may find the spot both inviting and relaxing. Related: Microlibrary built with 2,000 recycled ice cream buckets tackles illiteracy in Indonesia At night, the pod locks up and glows with the light of LED bulbs powered by hidden rooftop solar panels. The structure still serves a function for nighttime visitors, providing ambient light for community events after dusk. The architects are proud of the pod’s “pure, simple form that belies a deeply thoughtful approach to architecture.” + Atelier Kastelic Buffey Via  Ignant Images via Bob Gundu , Shai Gil

Comments Off on India’s sweeping 20 million LED streetlight retrofit will save $890 million each year

India’s government announced a major commitment to energy efficiency earlier this year when the Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP) was launched, calling for 20 million lightbulbs in streetlights to be replaced with LED bulbs . The largest project of its kind, the upgrades will take about two years to complete, and comprise part of a larger effort to reduce the national power load and save hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Which type of lightbulb reigns supreme?

After being used for over 100 years it’s fairly safe to say that the incandescent bulb is old technology, and it has taken a long time for new technology to replace it. After a brief rise in the popularity of CFLs, the most recent technology to catch on is the LED bulb – but are they worth the additional expense? This infographic from Sunpower UK compares the three different types of bulbs and reveals which type is the best bang for your buck.

Comments Off on Colorful noise-pollution barriers that also generate solar energy being tested in the Netherlands

Technology research is often about finding ways to combine two different functions into one tool or, as you might have heard it said before, kill two birds with one stone. In the Netherlands, a consortium of research facilities and energy companies is a little closer to doing just that. By combining solar energy generation with much-needed noise-reduction barriers along a busy Dutch highway, the team hopes to prove that they’ve developed an environmentally-friendly solution to two of modern life’s biggest challenges.
