IKEA’s Solkullen LED lamp uses 85 percent less energy
Creating beautiful shady waves upon your colourful walls, IKEA has revealed this spring a luminous paper lamp to brighten the bedroom. the SOLKULLEN LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a lamp that emits a unique and calming effect, much like the effects huge aquariums add to create a soothing aura to its surroundings.
Designer Ehlen Johansson, who is well-known for her mystical designs for IKEA has designed a lamp that reduces energy usage by 85 percent compared to a traditional light bulb.
“I worked with a technique of stretching holes in sheet material,” Johansson explained. “I hope people will like the lamp for the character it adds to their homes, as well as for the waste-efficient production and energy-saving LED.”
The lamp ressembles a frilly Victorian hooped underskirt that delivers an element of ‘chic’-ness to the interior, while the wavy pattern brings out texture in your wallpaper.
LED lights are real energy savers that last 25 times longer than regular light bulbs. According to SmartPlanet, if Japan were to replace all its 1.6 billion light bulbs with LED alternatives, the country would save the annual electricity output of 13 nuclear reactors.
Not only will the Solkullen eleviate our environmental impact and save you quite a bit of money, it will also make your house look great while doing so.
