Posted by EarthLED News on

While the trend in hanging a collection of exposed-filament, Edison-style bulbs like a gathering of old friends has been around for the past 20 years in restaurant designs, vintage LED bulbs now put a fresh, energy-efficient spin on these uniquely cool, warm lighting ideas. Originally found in edgy urban steampunk hangouts, energy-guzzling versions of Thomas Edison’s 1880s lightbulb provided rich, nostalgic comfort to balance industrial cool with its amber glow.

The temperature of this metal is a physical measure in degrees Kelvin or absolute temperature. While lamps other than incandescent such as LEDs do not exactly mimic the output of this piece of metal, we utilize the correlated color temperature (or Kelvins) to describe the appearance of that light source...

What are filament LED Bulbs or vintage LED bulbs?

Posted by EarthLED News on

Up until now, LED bulbs have looked fairly unconventional. This is primarily due to the use of flat chip based LEDs that have provided very little in the way of design flexibility. Some manufacturers such as CREE have developed unique filament tower technology to arrange chip based LEDs vertically inside a bulb to mimic a traditional light pattern but the external appearance of the bulb still looks fairly foreign to anyone used to a traditional incandescent bulb. Above: CREE's LED Filament Tower Design This has left a key part of the market neglected by LEDs, namely fixtures and applications requiring a...
