Light and Building, Frankfurt 2010

Posted April 11, 2010 // Tagged as Blog // No Comments ↓

Well here we are again pretty much everyone with commercial interests in lighting is in Frankfurt attending the mother of all lighting exhibitions. Given we are now 7 months into the first stage of the ban on incandescent lamps it is simply stunning how many products particularly in the decorative and domestic sectors are still designed for and exhibited with traditional incandescent lamps.

So far I have yet to see anything new in incandescent replacements though i have not yet made it around the entire exhibition, and am unlikely to do so given constraints on time. Sad to report that Osram are still claiming an 11W CFLis equal to a 60W incandescent despite the judgment in Iceland posted previously.

I will let you know if anything interesting surfaces tomorrow.
