And to say that everyone thought to have been among the last witnesses to know what an incandescent bulb looked like! With the breaking wave of LED , we had already used to relegate the incandescent bulb to a museum room, having in a corner of his school memory Edison's filament bulb, and all the material tests that preceded the tungsten modern.
It also seems that a type of filament that still works in some of the first bulbs is made of bamboo fibers.

But the incandescent bulb did not say its last word; we have been witnessing for a few years, an upheaval in the design of the lighting , with the arrival in force of the so-called filament lamp. These bulbs are relatively low consumption, between 30 and 60 watts all the same, similar in their shapes and in the path of the filament to the first attempts to produce artificial light.
If you've ever had the opportunity to see the inside of an old radio, or if you have a modern high-end amp, you're familiar with the design of transistors, and the complex structure that supports the filament. The filament lamps of contemporary design look, for some of them, these transistors, with the reflective portion of the apex of the bulb less.

These lamps can be used in the form of suspensions, or enter the composition of a luminous bouquet, it should be noted that they are often used in small groups, and that their primary function is not so much to enlighten as to provide an interesting design effect, which adapts to a modern style, but also rustic, vintage or industrial.

The cable used in the arrangement of an incandescent light bulb Edison type , or filament lamp, must also follow the vintage rule, of course. We find for this purpose in the trade of textile cable available in a variety of colors to hone details to the end. See our photos.
