We sat down with Linda and Cao to learn more about the IKEA SOLHETTA LED bulbs that are both more energy efficient and more affordable on average than the previous range of LED bulbs.
A couple of months ago, when Linda Lindestam went to her summer house in North Sweden, she observed something. While the sun was balmy and evenings were pleasant, there was a perceivable heat once she switched on the lights.
"It was the bulbs. We had the old ones, the incandescent bulbs, which had always been a part of the house. I could feel how warm they get…it was like energy was leaking out," says Linda. So, Linda swiftly changed the old bulbs with LED bulbs.
But it was not just the heat that motivated Linda to switch to LED bulbs. She is the product design engineer for SOLHETTA LED bulbs that IKEA recently developed. Along with Cao Quang Dong Duong, a product requirement engineer at IKEA, Linda has spent almost every working day in the last two years understanding and creating energy-efficient LED bulbs.
"We're always looking for more efficient bulbs and new technologies. Our vision is to bring a more sustainable lighting range with high quality that is affordable to the many people. With the energy efficient SOLHETTA LED bulbs, we want to enable our customers to save electricity and reduce energy costs," says Linda.
