Why one of our simplest designs – the light bulb – is also one of our best

Simple and curiously humanlike in its design, the incandescent light bulb revolutionised the way we live, yet it has hardly changed over the past century. Composed of the musings of the UK-based lighting designer Michael Anastassiades, this video is a brief ode to the humble object, and the beauty of its simplicity and duality.
