how to protect yourself from stupid rules: the euro condom
as part of milan design week 09 the german designer ingo maurer unveiled ‘the euro condom’
created in response to new EU guidelines that will see frosted light bulbs banned. the product
consists of a thin, heat-resistant silicone cover that turns a clear bulb into a frosted one.
as from september 2009 frosted bulbs will be banned in accordance with new EU guidelines on
light sources because they are said give off less light than clear bulbs. however, according to the
specifications of various manufacturers the difference, measured in lumens, is negligible or not existent.
