Sheffield based serial entrepreneur Gary Daly of GD Innovations contacted Fripp Design + Research with a problem to solve; Reduce the harshness of the standard, energy saving light bulb by introducing a coloured filter.
Fripp Design and Research conceived many ideas, from which Gary selected the principle of a silicon cup that fitted snugly over any bulb and was colour-tinted to diffuse the light.
Services used on this project included 3D CAD, photo-realistic Rendering and in-house prototyping before sourcing a suitable supplier for the production of a small batch of products for trials.
The Mood Shades are receiving rave reviews from the industry and consumers alike. Testament to the quality of the work, GD Innovations are working with Fripp Design and Research to develop several other innovative products too...watch this space!
