The World’s Largest Sculptural Bulb by Tala

British lighting brand Tala makes an artform out of electricity with its Voronoi III, thought to be the world’s largest sculptural bulb, measuring 40 cm by 25 cm. According to the company’s research, there’s no other sculptural bulb of its size out there.

“We’ve already had a pretty busy start to the year,” Tala design director Joe Armitage told ArchiExpo e-Magazine, having just recently showcased the Voronoi III at Maison et Objet and IMM.

We’re now celebrating its market launch by taking it on a road trip across Europe.

“The design came as a result of a year-long form‐finding mission where we embarked on the manufacturing process of 3-D printing a series of Voronoi structures in resin and simulating the natural erosion process, smoothing down the sharp lines to arrive at a subtle, organic shape that looks and feels like an object carved by nature.”

After a recent positive launch in Singapore, Tala is planning to unveil the newest addition to their Design Collection at ICFF in New York in May.
