Moooi has launched Hubble Bubble, a suspended lamp designed by Marcel Wanders Studio. Available in oil or frosted versions, this playful design is made from glass, and it can be hung both horizontally and vertically.
Inspired by the freedom of floating bubbles and running barefoot in the open air, this new lighting design is as playful as its inspiration. Each glass element of Hubble Bubble symbolizes a youthful spirit that returns home with an everlasting memory. The playfulness of the design is entrenched in all its elements; the versatility, the materials, plus it is powered through Electrosandwich by Marcel Wanders, Moooi's proprietary technology.
"Hubble Bubble captures those carefree youthful moments of blowing soap bubbles that aimlessly float away," commented Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director at Marcel Wanders studio. "Suspending our imagination in place, the iridescent lights on the interior and exterior flat ring cast infinite combinations across any room."
The suspended lamp is available as Hubble Bubble 7 and Hubble Bubble 11. Each bubble is made from blown glass spheres that come in an oil-iridescent or a frosted version. With bubbles made from glass, and a focus on elementary shapes, Hubble Bubble can be suspended both horizontally, vertically and everything in-between.
Hubble Bubble is powered through Electrosandwich by Marcel Wanders, an alternative to conventional wiring. It brings conductivity in complex objects or light-weight structures and has proven to be a great resolution to power multiple light sources in an invisible way. Electrosandwich starts from a thin and open metal structure, that requires specific quality specifications in manufacturing to make the technology work.
