booo studio Launch in Milan

lights commissioned by Nacho Carbonell, Design Front and Formafantasma

Holland

booo studio is a new company based in Holland and composed by an team coming from different fields and countries to work in between avantgarde design and mass production industry.

LED lightbulbs is the first challenge and for the occasion booo studio have asked Nacho Carbonell, Design Front and Formafantasma, among the most interesting design creatives on the scene, to re-design our usual idea of lightbulbs.

The result of this research is two collection of lightbulbs one meant for the mass production and one more experimental and released in a limited edition.

Inspired by the four classical elements, earth, air, fire and water, Nacho Carbonell has incorporated subtle references to these through the design of his hand made lightbulb. In an ingenious way, water in the bulb creates a sea-like light reflection from the light source, (the representation of fire) into the environment where the bulb is placed. Additionally, the user can interact with the lightbulbs size by pumping air into the lightbulb, another reference to an element.

The organic reference is explicit on the light designed by Studio Formafantasma which looks as if a traditional bulb has been stopped in the process of transforming into a leaf. Unusually asymmetrical the light is meant to be use as a single piece or as a flock of glowing leafs.
With the limited edition the organic world is not anymore only a formal reference. As a continuation of the previous work of the studio ‘Botanica’, the vessel of the bulb is produced with a 19th century material re-developed by Formafantasma composed by a polymer extracted from insect excrement that colonize trees mixed with wood powder.

Surface Tension Lamp by Front Design

A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. We wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with an LED light source that will last for 50000 hours. In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades.
