Alva: An Edison Inspired LED Lamp

Luke Anderson started with a reasonable request for $4,000 on Kickstarter, and he reached funding in 24 hours.  Now, with 14 days left, Anderson has $25,000 in support for Alva — The Lightbulb Lamp.  It’s 8.5″ wide by 17.5″ tall and comes in brown, white, or black ceramic base options.  The lamp is powered by a replaceable LED with a hand-shaped filament.  Alva* looks like a classic early Edison bulb, but it’s a lot bigger and will retail after the Kickstarter campaign for $550.

*Alva, an apt name for this lamp, is Thomas Edison’s middle name.

    Very interesting! Luke could could cut costs by using painted clay flowerpots for the bases. I’d also like to know more about the replaceable LED “filaments” such as lifespan, lumens etc.
