Balloon Lamp

industrial design

This elegant lamp has been created by Berlin based designer Uli Budde for Slovenian lighting brand Vertigo Bird. Inspired by traditional oil lamps, the piece produces warm diffused light. The effect is achieved by the three simple elements - a bulb, a cylindrical base and a thin diffuser, leaning over it.

Here is how designer describes the piece:

The lamp’s light source is situated inside a cylindrical base. Light shines upwards and lights the reflector, which tilts forwards, re-directing and reflecting a diffused glimmer of light.

If you look at the lamp full face, it resembles an air balloon (hence the name). It is made from lacquered aluminium and plastic and is available in white or yellow.
