czech-born lucie koldová and israel-born dan yeffet collaborated to create the ‘balloons’ collection’ for brokis. a reflector holding a lightbulb floats within the blown glass vessel. the largest of the three sizes pushes the material to the limit, as it is the maximum dimension the glass can expand using handmade processes. one tabletop model and two floor lamps complete the set, as different wire and reflector combinations add playfulness to the series.

  • the light is from 2 parts from blown glass
    but look great like one big bubble

  • why are we still designing lamps with incandescent bulbs?

    indignant
  • where does heat escape from? wouldn’t the glass burst if you leave it on a long time? it’s still a beautiful design
