Brightgreen BR450 LED candle bulb - Brightgreen Pty. Ltd.

Product Design - Lighting

- Winner

Melbourne based premium LED lighting company Brightgreen's BR450 candle bulb offers a long-life, energy efficient alternative to 35W incandescent candle bulbs that marries contemporary aesthetics with environmental responsibility. With an operating power of 7W and a brightness of 414 lumens, the BR450 uses only 20% of the energy of its incandescent equivalent to give an efficacy of 59 lumens per Watt, making it impressively efficient. The bulb's conical luminaire is designed to cast an even 180° spread of warm 3000K light across interiors, and its streamlined shape and minimal detailing makes it the ideal partner for modern light fittings. “The BR450 was developed in response to the trend for modern, minimal light fitting aesthetics as a more suitable energy efficient alternative to the classic candle bulb. It has definitely caused a stir with lighting designers; many have commented that its unconventional form flatters contemporary designs,” says Brightgreen CEO and head product designer David O’Driscoll.
