Winners / Brit Insurance Design Awards

From an original concept for a cookery book and iPhone app, to an open air library, an organically-shaped chair and the world’s first designer light bulb, the winners of this years Brit Insurance Design Awards at London’s Design Museum were an inspired collection from the world of architecture, fashion, furniture, graphics, interactive, product and transport.

We especially like the product design award, given to winner Plumen 001. This is the world’s first designer light bulb created by Samuel Wilkinson and Hulger. Using 80% less energy and lasting approximately eight times longer than a typical incandescent bulb, the Plumen 001 is formed of two interwoven glass tubes that curve organically so as to create a new silhouette from each and every angle.

“It’s strange that the bulb, an object so synonymous with ideas, is almost entirely absent of imagination.” plumen.com
