The TR Bulb is a clever solution for modern city living. Instead of focussing on the design of a new fixture the TR range is all built around a simple opal glass sphere - the bulb itself. Menu have created a range of ultra-minimal fixtures to use with TR bulb, but the main concept of this design is that you probably already have a fixture that will work with it.
Inspired by the way people are increasingly becoming urban nomads, moving between cities and countries to pursue careers and life experiences: The first collaboration between MENU and Tim Rundle, TR Bulb is designed to be taken from apartment to apartment – installed by simply screwing it into the pendant sockets hanging in ceilings all over the world, no electrical expertise required.
A dimmable LED bulb, its elegant, spherical form hides the lamp fitting, while the opal glass diffuser creates an even, harmonious, warm glow – preventing glare. Pair with your existing light fittings, explore products in the TR range or pick products like the Menu Warren Wall Lamp, Franklin Chandelier or the Muuto E27 pendant to use it with.
