BUD is a 'collapsible' light that contracts and expands depending on the desired look. Its construction is suitable for and promotes the use of energy-saving light bulbs, reduces space during freight and creates a dynamic aesthetic. Stebbing’s entry was a standout, with all judges awarding top marks for innovation and noting the light for its environmentally sustainable design.
The competition asked entrants to “create an ambient lamp for the darkness of tomorrow”. Designs had to work to five key criteria: environmental friendliness, illumination, ease of manufacture, economic efficiency and cost-effective delivery (freight).
Designer and judge Matthew Sheargold described ‘BUD’ as “unique, a beautiful new form”. The light, which visually mimics geometries of nature, uses Hive’s sustainable materials and manufacturing processes.
Finishes: Platinum, Java and Whitewash.
