Illuminated glass droplets complete of bubbles seem to fall from the ceiling in this installation by Japanese studio Torafu Architects (+ slideshow).
The Water Balloon installation at the Konica Minolta Plaza Gallery in Tokyo was developed by Torafu Architects for the Eco & Art Award 2014 exhibition.
The designers worked with a glass artist to type a series hand-blown bulbs from recycled material.
Every single fluorescent lamp is a various shape and patterned with bubbles developed throughout the blowing procedure.
“The bubbles inside each distinctive shape aid produce a distinctive ethereal light,” said the designers.
Suspended from wires at numerous heights about the small room, the 36 “water balloons” pulsate with light in the dark space.
“We strived to develop a space exactly where [guests] can catch a glimmer of a new all-natural atmosphere,” the designers added.
