The new Bolle lamp, designed by the Anglo-Italian team Giopato & Coombes, is inspired by the lightness of soap bubbles as a metaphor for the emptiness of light, made from hand blown glass.
Bolle is a suspension lamp in transparent glass, where the illuminating brass bulb is suspending between the spheres, giving light to not only the space but also the curved surfaces, multiplying reflections to amplify the magical effect.
For few seconds, in front of us, we were surrounded by hundreds of soap bubbles. It was a magical moment with their formal simplicity it was beautiful and immediate: we wanted to crystallize this moment, when the bubbles grow until they touch each other, just before exploding! So this was the beginning. For us the lightness of the soap bubbles has become a metaphor for the immateriality of light Giopato & Coombes
