概要

Fusing timeless design with innovative technology, SIMBULB is a perfect successor of incandescent light bulb in modern days. It has a revolutionary design in creating a 3D spiral LED light source which allows the bulb to emit light in 360 degrees. While traditional LED bulbs use heat sink to dissipate heat, SIMBULB does not need to operate with heat sink, credits to the 3D package structure which helps the bulb to conduct heat. At the same time, it consumes 90 percent less energy than incandescent. SIMBULB inherits the aesthetics of incandescent yet enhances the efficiency of the bulb.

受賞対象の詳細

背景

Consumers had formed the perception that a light bulb should possess the characteristics of incandescent but most energy saving bulbs does not have such characteristics. As the market has banned selling incandescent, there is a strong demand for a cheap light bulb that resembles the incandescent. Therefore we want to develop a LED light bulb that can perfectly replace the incandescent light bulb.

デザインコンセプト

The idea of the design is to create a LED bulb that inherits classic design, integrates traditional aesthetics with innovative technology and changes consumers' perception on energy saving bulbs.

企画・開発の意義

As the market is longing for incandescent and the existing energy saving light bulb usually has low color rendering, the designer would like to create a LED light bulb that possess the elements of incandescent and CRI 95. Meanwhile, the product can perfectly integrate energy efficiency with retro style. Our aim is to raise industry standard and to bring the best lighting experience to consumers.

創意工夫

The greatest feature of SIMBULB is the 3D spiral light source. The designer boldly makes use of the properties of metal, simply pulls up a 2D metal plate to a 3D spiral shape substrate, followed by an easy process. Thus if two substrates are put together, the light source will emit light in 360 degrees. Most LED light bulbs use reflection or more complex assembly methods to increase the beam angle. However, light will be dispersed during reflection and complex assembly methods use more materials. On the other hand, LED chips are directly bonded on a metal substrate, together with the 3D package structure; the substrate can be used to conduct heat. Thus the design does not require a heat sink. SIMBULB looks good and has low production cost. It is a perfect replacement to the incandescent.

デザイナーの想い

The designer wants to bring a message through this design, we can bring a vital story by injecting the concept of energy saving into old products. When we continue to develop new technologies and demolish old buildings or products, we may need to consider preserving wisdom, knowledge and good attitude from the past as a traditional cultural heritage for the next generation.

審査委員の評価

既製品のLEDではなく、専用に開発されたスパイラル型(蚊取り線香を伸ばしたような形)のLED2個を上下に直列につなぎ、LEDの欠点であった照射角の問題を解決した。また、成熟しきった白熱球の生産技術(ガラス部分と接点部分)をそのまま利用できるので、非常に低コストでもある。実際にスパイラルのLED素子が発光する様はとても美しく、従来の白熱球がそうであったように、単なる光源としてではなく、電球そのものを照明の一部として扱えるデザインとなっている。
