Energy-efficient light bulb production could take a major hit

The production of energy-efficient light bulbs could be hurt by a new proposal.

If the regulations are rolled back, experts warn that less-efficient bulbs will increase energy bills and lead to additional pollution. The bulbs in question were not originally included in President George W. Bush’s 2007 law, which pushed for more LED bulbs. These products include decorative gl...

A solar-powered home in Maine rises above the sand dunes on wooden stilts

When was the last time you stepped into a phone booth? If you’re under 30, you might not even be aware that phone booths used to be on nearly every street corner as a means to contact your parents after the football game or call a taxi after dinner.

Conversation Piece: Alice

As with most things Edra, Alice is a functional piece of furniture—and so much more. Designed by Jacopo Foggini, Alice does indeed provide a place to sit but its appeal depends more on its artistic quality: Alice resembles a molded pile of spaghetti solidified by ectoplasmic glue. Constructed of polycarbonate monocoque using a technique in which plastic ropes are “applied manually with artistic gestures,” Alice is intended for both indoor and outdoor use. And, in case its shape and texture are ...

LED lighting company aims to bring a little 'friluftsliv' into our hectic lives

No matter what stresses you deal with on a daily basis, the practice of reconnecting with nature is always beneficial. Scandinavians call this connection ‘friluftsliv’ (pronounced free-loofts-liv). Literally translated to “open-air living,” the term refers to the value of spending time in remote natural locations in order to rejuvenate ourselves, mentally and physically. Of course the problem is that our daily schedules are not always conducive to taking a nature-based break. As a solution, a f...

New Product Alert: Tala LED Lighting in London
