In the spotlight: the bubblicious lamp by Dutch designer Chis Kabel

Today I want to put the spotlight on Dutch designer Chis Kabel and in particular on one specific design, the Bubblicious lamp. This lamp has been around for a while now and Kabel has had an exhibition of this lamp the Dutch National Glass Museum a few years back. But I recently stumbled upon it and fell in love with its simple beauty all over again...

What is so special about this glass lamp is that each and every one is unique. Every glass bubble is blown by mouth through a special set of pliers. This gives every glass bubble a different shape. Chris Kabel is also known for his sticky lamp he designed in 2001 for the label Droog. More information on his designs and projects visit his website www.chriskabel.com.

  3. Chris Kabel designed the beautiful Shadylace sun shade patio umbrella for Droog Design in the Netherlands. The Shadylace patio umbrella is definitely one of the most beautiful sun shades we have ever seen.
