I have a rather extensive list of bulbs with a number of manufacturers listed
with detailed statistics/characteristics.  I could not find a Sylvania Designer 
BUT I did find an Osram Design 50, which is also a 5000k bulb.  It comes in
15, 20, 35, 40, and 60 watt bulbs.

BTW,  if anyone wants a copy of this list just let me know.  This list was 
posted somewhere by George Booth for Joseph Sellinger.  It could have been
posted on this list.  I don't know.  I received it from Drew Warwick.  It is a 
thorough list of bulbs.
