Freedom is in the air...
Hubble Bubble, designed by Marcel Wanders, takes you back to the freedom of blowing bubbles and running barefoot in the open air. Evoke a moment in which a frisky spirit is set free, only to find its way back home with an everlasting memory. These recollections are symbolized in each element of the Hubble Bubble. The glass bubbles are vailable in oil-iridescent and frosted versions and the Hubble Bubble can be hung both horizontally and vertically. Powered through Electrosandwich® by Marcel Wanders (a technique of coating conductive layers, very thin and delicate) enables the LEDs to draw lowvoltage current from the frame. This design would not be possible with normal wires.
"Here to create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true."
