Front : Surface Tension Lamp

Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren founders of the Swedish design group Front have designed this astonishing project : Surface Tension Lamp, a lamp that blows bubbles … and smoke. It will be presented at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milano this week.

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. We wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with an LED light source that will last for 50000 hours. In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades.
