vosled LED-filament light bulb by Martin Enenkel

Home > Winners > #39995


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
vosled

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
LED-filament light bulb

INSPIRATION:
The most beautiful light in the living area is that of a candle. With his carbon filament lamp Edison tried to recreate this light and he succeeded perfectly. There was only one reason why it had to disappear from the market: it consumed too much electricity. With the vosLED vosla has surpassed the original by far: the LED-filaments are the ideal light source to develop the old classic further and to exploit all the potential of the LED-technology.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The distinctive feature of the vosLED bulb is an innovative LED-filament consisting of hundreds of low-power micro LEDs, arranged along the filament like pearls on a string. The colour temperature of 2,700 K corresponds exactly to the colour temperature of conventional bulbs, in other words: they create a warm light. With a colour rendering index Ra of more than 90, the vosLED comes very close to the maximum value of 100 achieved by conventional lamps with clear glass bulbs.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The vosLED is refreshingly simple. Nobody has to explain it: unpack, screw in, switch on – warm light instantly. There is no need to change the lamp sockets to use the vosLED. They can just be screwed in instead of the now banned traditional light bulb. No customer has to purchase new lamps if he wants to exploit the advantages of the vosLED. With up to 30,000 operating hours it lights ten times longer than the traditional light bulb.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
In January 2013 Markus Winkler took over vosla’s development and innovation section in Plauen/Germany and at once started the development of the vosLED. Production of the first lamps began in December 2013. The vosLED with the RED DOT award-winning transparent ring has been produced since the autumn of 2014.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The vosLED is delivered from the plant in Plauen/Germany, the production process resembles that of an incandescent lamp, but instead of the traditional filament the LED-filaments are inserted. The vosLED light bulb contains no toxic substances and as an electronic item it can be transferred into the already available process chains for recycling via the well-known recycling programmes. Since the vosLED does not have a cooling element, its production saves aluminium.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The vosLED has exactly the same dimensions as the classic and emits warm light immediately. With the E14 and E27 bases it fits into all lamp sockets. In operation it only gets hand-warm. The vosLED comes in ten versions for an operating voltage of 230 V: with the bulb bases E14 and E27, with clear or frosted glass and with power ratings between 1 and 5.5 watts. The vosLED is dimmable. There is a list of dimmers suitable for the vosLED.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
LEDs consume less energy, but when they are enclosed in a glass bulb a small amount of heat has, nevertheless, to be dissipated. Since the inventors by no means wanted to use a cooling element, they developed the “transparent cooling” with a special filling gas. To reach a high efficiency level, vosla uses a special for vosLED developed mixture for coating of the filaments.

CHALLENGE:
The creative challenge: vosla wanted to create an alternative to the now banned Edison light bulb which was so popular with consumers. The characteristics of the original were to be preserved and, in addition, the light bulb was to be equipped with the advantages of the LED-technology. The research challenge: A new cooling had to be developed which makes the cooling element redundant. The colour temperature and the all-round radiation characteristics were to be preserved. The new lamp should save energy and be environmentally friendly.
