CMYK Light Bulb

Milan 2013: designer Dennis Parren has developed a light bulb that casts coloured shadows.  The CMYK bulb by Dennis Parren combines a white main light source with coloured LEDs in red, green and blue to cast shadows in cyan, magenta and yellow.  The design is a commercial development of the one-off CMYK lamps that Parren developed as part of his graduation project at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011.  ‘It is easier to produce and you find yourself more in [the] mainstream of lighting,’ says Parren of the new design. ‘That makes it many times more accessible.’ He expects the bulb to be priced around €95 when it appears in shops.
