torafu architects have designed the ‘water balloon’, a luminaire that has the same visual properties as a single droplet of liquid. small air bubbles fill the glass blub, resembling tiny particles of carbonation trapped inside. lit by an LED source hidden at its crown, the light that filters through reflects off both the small spheres accumulated inside and the asymmetrical tear shape.
