Porcelain LED Bulb emits a calming, warm light that its maker Tala sees as an antidote to the overly harsh industrial aesthetic oft-prevelant in design. Deployed singly or in combination, each of the 4 different bulb shapes is imbued with a specific color temperature of 2,200 Kelvin for illumination that resembles a candlelit setting. And, though young British lighting brand Tala aims to create notable low-carbon impact products, it furthers its nod to sustainability by planting 10 trees for every 200 units sold.

"We are focused on the idea that good design can help mitigate climate change." says Tala co-founder Joshua Ward, describing his company's mission to be commercially successful while having a positive impact on the environment. The British lighting brand now based in east London was founded by Ward, Maxwell Wood and William Symington while they were studying at the University of Edinburgh. The company’s low-energy LED versions recreate the warm glow of traditional incandescent bulbs with the look and feel of the originals as well as strikingly oversized versions.
“Being LED, the bulbs last 10 to 15 times longer, so they're no longer disposable items," says design director Joe Armitage. With that notion, Tala has also unveiled design-statement bulbs like its Porcelain collection with a matte opal finish and Voronoi’s sculptural, mouth-blown shapes. The company also offers curated single-bulb and pendant combination fixtures and timeless table lamps featuring its bulbs. Tala’s wares are oft-seen in bars, restaurants and hotels around the world, with clients including Soho House and The Hoxton hotels.
