Since the invention of the incandescent light bulb in 1802... the form has always evolved down a similar path: pear-shaped. The Flat Bulb designed by Korean Designer, Joonhuyn Kim over 200-years later, finally sees things differently.... (kind-of)
First question that pops in most people's minds is, "Why?.... What's the Advantage?".
The slim form-factor of the Flat Bulb is 1/3 smaller than the traditional bulb, reducing the carbon footprint during shipping. Although still 'pear-shaped', the flat design allows for the bulbs to be stacked and best-of-all prevents the bulb from rolling around and breaking.
