Spore, a Seattle-based design firm has released an illuminated doorbell – TRUE, designed by Ted Pierson, 2009 – which takes the doorbell out of the afterthought and into the foreground of contemporary home design.
The TRUE button bridges the gap between modern and traditional design. An all-metal push button is surrounded by a thin halo of LED-illuminated color, which also reflects against the mounting surface. Designed to fit well with residences built from 1900 on, TRUE comes in several finishes and three illumination colors, as well as a non-illuminated option. Substantial in feel but narrow in diameter, TRUE mounts well to narrow doorjambs and other tight applications. The illuminated version sells online at www.100watt.net for $47.60 in the illuminated version and non-illuminated for $39.20
100watt Network has been selling illuminated buttons since 1998 and these buttons are used for doorbells, garage door openers, indicator lights, theater seating or “in use” indicators.
100watt Network was created out of a desire to promote and achieve American craft in architectural product field with an emphasis on Lighting and LED products.
