They commissioned designer Jason Bruges to create an “interactive garden of light”, which responded to human movement via a set of touch pads dotted throughout the area.
In a statement, Greenpeace said, “Energy efficiency is one of the most powerful tools we have for fighting climate change, and this installation will prove that going green doesn’t mean sacrificing good design. The bulbs themselves have been nominated in the “most innovative lighting” category at the 100% Design London awards, and the installation has been moved to the front of house feature space. It’s a sure sign that the exhibition organisers have realised that they have something new and exciting on their hands.”
It’s not clear when these bulbs are going to be available for domestic or commercial use, rather than
wasting using less energy in this artistic garden setting, but apparently each bulb saves as much CO2 in its lifetime as emitted by two people in Bangladesh. So there you go. Just don’t talk about all the mercury in these “eco-friendly” bulbs.
