Lights Out by Hudson-Powell
Design company Hudson-Powell have created this rather endearing poster, encouraging us to show light bulbs a bit of compassion.
“In the Shinto religion inanimate objects are often given a persona or spirit to help people relate to them in a more humanistic way and to create a dialog with the object. Taking this idea and applying it to light bulbs, making them delicate living things that need rest and can dream seemed like a playful way of getting people to remember to turn them off.”
Lighting a typical office overnight wastes enough energy to heat water for 1,000 cups of tea.
If constant switch flicking is blistering your fingertips then check out Plumen – the world’s first designer low energy light bulb. It will save you 80% on your energy bills and lasts 8 times longer than a standard incandescent bulb.
