Light is essential for our day to day living. Thanks to Thomas Edison, who invented the first commercially practical incandescent light, everybody’s lives became much easier during the night.
But a hundred years later lights are not only about brightening up the room anymore – it has also become a medium of art expression. The creativity of people has found a way to integrate art into it. Today, there are many lighting ideas that we can only call genius – like Edison genius!
Here are some that inspired us to think and get creative…
