The Story Behind It

The Edison Light Bulb: The Lasting Endurance of Design

In 1879, Thomas Edison invented the carbon-based filament light bulb, which could burn brightly for up to 13.5 hours. Later swapping carbon-based filament for enduring tungsten filament, he created the commercial incandescent light bulb, which could burn for over 1,200 hours. By 1883, Edison's company, General Electric, pioneered the first overhead electrical lighting system that would eventually bring electricity to street lamps.

Like other inventors of his time, Edison created a number of light bulb shapes and tweaked their brightness levels according to each task-specific need from the brilliant lighting needed for a living room space to the softer ambiance desired for a desktop. Incandescent light bulbs remain present in households today. Known for their vintage-inspired, one-of-a-kind glow, they shine beautifully when exposed on pendant, floor or table lamps.
