Ingo Maurer’s Euro Condom

As part of milan design week 09 the german designer Ingo Maurer unveiled ‘the euro condom’ created in response to new EU guidelines that will see frosted light bulbs banned.

The product consists of a thin, heat-resistant silicone cover that turns a clear bulb into a frosted one:

Bulb Condom

Bulb Condom 2

Bulb Condom 3

How ToBefore and After :)

The background of this idea is that many energy saving lamps look just like the new incandescend (bulb covered) condom lamp.
