Forever Blowing Bubbles!

May 7, 2012

Every now and again we come across a product in the interior architecture and design industry that we simply have to share on our blog, today we have done just that and like last week’s product feature today’s is another from the world of lighting design. Imagine bubble lighting, not those horrible old chunky light fittings from the 80’s, I mean real bubble lighting. Hard to imagine? Well, thankfully the guys from FRONT in collaboration with booo have created the Surface Tension Lamp and it is stunning, the Surface Tension Lamp is a real life working and awesome bubble lamp.

As described by the designers below:-

A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts,it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. We wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with an LED light source that will last for 50000 hours.  In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades.

An wicked concept that is done ever more justice by the cool images and video below.
