Planilum Light


Why bother replacing incandescent light bulbs every few months when you can brighten your home for 20 years (or 50,000 hours) with Planilum’s luminescent glass plates? Each panel, which can be incorporated into a shelf or table or can stand alone, is less than an inch thick, composed of four layers of glass, nontoxic gas, and phosphorescent compounds. Planilum emits a soft glow and can be touched without risk of burning. Also, unlike incandescent bulbs, it is energy efficient and 90 percent recyclable. How many designers does it take to change a modern light bulb? Just one: SAAZS.
