Alva: LED technology meets a classic design

July 30, 2012

The Edison bulb has become seemingly ubiquitous throughout Brooklyn restaurants and small design shops for a good reason: it evokes nostalgia and is a classic, enduring design. Maybe it’s the exposed filament, the dim lighting, the historic significance it embodies, whatever the reason, the Edison bulb is beautiful, although not too efficient.

Luke Anderson has developed a lamp called Alva, that pairs modern LED technology with Edison’s classic design. With a ceramic base, a glass bulb blown by a local artist, each Alva lamp is powered by an LED bulb with filaments that Luke Anderson shapes by hand.
