The designer used the idea and the classic shape to create a modern accessory. It’s a very simple lamp but it’s the minimalism that makes it so special. The name is suggestive in this case and it expresses the main characteristics that define the lamp: its size and shape. The Mega Bulb pendant lamp was the winner of numerous awards such as the Good Design award and the Wallpaper Design award.
The Mega Bulb is a handcrafted lamp with a design reminiscent of the Scandinavian classicism and a minimalist design. It has a timeless look and a versatile shape that makes it wonderful for spaces such as the dining room, the living room, the office, the kitchen, the hallway etc. It can be used as a single piece or in sets of two and three. The Mega Bulb pendant lamp is the perfect combination of minimalist, classicism, functionality and style. Because of its size it would be suitable for large spaces. Of course, it can also be used to create a contrasting look in a small area but the effect would be a little more dramatic.
