Designers are going back to basics, re-examining the beauty of the lightbulb and, in some cases, elevating it to iconic status. One such project is AlessiLux, a new collection of lightbulbs created by Italian design brand Alessi in collaboration with Foreverlamp.

Alberto Alessi said of the project: “I think that the new operation with Foreverlamp is going to blaze a trail for a revolutionary story in the world of lighting: it’s as if hiding those boring, anonymous and often truly ugly light bulbs will no longer be necessary".
