The Bubble Lamp

A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. This is the remarkable and ingenious Surface Tension Lamp.

Created by Swedish designers Front, the unique Surface Tension Lamp blows a bubble every few seconds to form a near-transparent shade that can catch the light and create a kaleidoscope of colours round an LED.

The Surface Tension Lamp has the capability to run for 50,000 hours.  That means you could leave it constantly running for more than 5 and half years, in which time it will have produced more than 3 million different bulbs, which each one slightly different to the last.
