IRIS – The Soap Bubble Lights

We then spotted the “Iris” pendent lamps by Sebastian Scherer of Neo/Craft: lights that are reminiscent of ‘soap bubbles’. The inspiration for Iris were bubbles blown by children. It comes as no surprise then that they seem to have a magnetic draw for visitors, wanting to touch and explore their semi-translucent form.

The soap bubble lights take the form of a permanent bubble:  perfectly spherical, smooth and beautifully iridescence like oil. The iridescence is achieved through a new coating on the glass being used by the designers.

Glass Bubbles

‘Glass Bubble’ seemed to be a recurring theme during the London Design week: the ‘curiosity cloud’ installation and Lee Broom’s ‘Podium’ vases.
