Concept lamp blows bubbles for lampshades
December 20, 2012
The counterpoint is obvious – the most fleeting of "lampshades" married to that most long-living of light sources: the LED. The Surface Tension Lamp by FRONT continuously blows soap bubbles which, as they inflate and eventually burst, creates a dynamic lit environment.
According to FRONT's math, its Surface Tension Lamp will create approximately 3 million different lampshades over the course of the tens of thousands of hours of the LED's working life.
"A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch," says FRONT's description of the project. "But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-colored temporary structure."
