BUSTER Bulb: A LED that raises the bar in lighting technologies

London-born design label, Buster + Punch are the brains behind the worlds first designer LED bulb.



BY Ashley Tucker

March 1st, 2016


Defining the next evolution for an industry that is undergoing a change in ideals, the BUSTER bulb raises the bar in lighting technologies. Drawing inspiration from the Eddison filament bulb, a teardrop-shaped glass shell houses a resin light pipe that creates a crisp, clean quality of light. There’s a choice of three glass colours in either warm gold, smoked grey or bright crystal and the bulbs are finished with a satin metallic sheen, so they look as good off as they do when they’re on.

The resin light pipe at the centre of the BUSTER bulb is where the magic happens. These patented white fins allow ambient light to diffuse through the sides of the bulb and reflect down the centre of the pipe, where it exits as a spot light. The light pipe has enabled us to create a bulb that can provide subtle lighting in a room, whilst at the same time throw focused light onto tables and surfaces below.

You can get your hands on a BUSTER bulb online.
