A bubble is brief and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi colored 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.
The lamp produces its own lampshade by blowing a soap bubble around the LED. Once the bubble bursts, a new bubble will start to form. The Surface Tension Lamp is designed by Front (Sweden). After further developing it we’ve produced it in a limited edition of 20 pieces.
