The iconic incandescent bulb has been the source of inspiration for KiBiSi’s Bulb Fiction™ pendant. The classic shape has been upscaled and designed as a whole unit, uniting socket and bulb into one iconic shape. The fixture creates the allusion of a classic incandescent bulb, hides the low energy light source and ensures a comfortable, soft light. The pendant consists of an acid treated opal glass shade, an aluminium suspension and an extra thick silicone cord. Bulb Fiction™ works beautifully as a single lamp, but it also looks fantastic when hung in a cluster, in a straight line or in staggered formations. It is possible to play with the design by means of tying knots in the cord.
