Biei | one-of-a-kind artisan crafted LED light bulbs

only 1 LED light bulbs molten lava

Only 1 is a relatively new Japanese retailer of LED lighting. They’ve tasked themselves with providing a selection of one-of-a-kind LED light bulbs that you probably won’t find anywhere else. And so far they’re succeeding. One of their most eye-catching collections is Biei (美影, or beautiful shadow), a series of LED light bulbs hand-crafted by artisans.

Molten Lava by Toshiyuki Yasuda

These molten lava LED light bulbs (37,800 yen) looks like they’ve hardened on the very surface they’re sitting on. When lit up, a copious amount of air bubbles helps to create a dreamy sense of reality.

Grape

This Grape LED light bulb (32,400 yen) has small, round bubbles of glass attached to make it look like grapes growing on a vine. As beautiful as it is, I wouldn’t want airport security to search my bag and find this.

Icicle by Hitoshi Kamiura

These icicle bulbs (21,600~25,920 yen) were hand blown without using a mold; rather, simply relying on the forces of gravity. Each piece is unique and different, just like real icicles.

Dragon Fruit by Hisao Iida

Removing the glass from the furnace, Iida quickly takes a pair of scissors and cuts at the molten glass to create a prickly surface. The result is Dragon Fruit (32,400 yen), an LED light bulb modeled after the cactus fruit of the same name.
