Inspired by the freedom of floating bubbles and running barefoot in the open air, this new lighting design by Moooi is as playful as its inspiration. Each glass element of Hubble Bubble symbolizes a youthful spirit that returns home with an everlasting memory.
“Hubble Bubble captures those carefree youthful moments of blowing soap bubbles that aimlessly float away,” explains 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.”
“Hubble Bubble is as versatile as our wildest memories,” states Moooi.“When applied in multiples, its bubbles will lure in any spectator.” Hubble Bubble enables you to create your own composition as different suspension angles are made possible. It has a lean frame because it is powered through Electrosandwich by Marcel Wanders. The simplicity of the glowing spheres, connected to the thin metal rim, creates a feeling of lightness and unity. With this design Marcel Wanders studio created the opportunity to never let bubbles of soap fade into thin air and turn a fleeting dream into reality.
Hubble Bubble by Marcel Wanders studio is a suspended lamp 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. This proprietary technology is a good example how important innovation is for Moooi and how the lifestyle brand never stops to improve its designs. Electrosandwich by Marcel Wanders is a solution that brings conductivity in complex objects or light-weight structures. It has proven to be a great resolution to power multiple light sources in an invisible way.
