The light drops are made from recycled fluorescent lamps and they emit a warm ethereal light, creating a dreamy space where visitors can lose themselves for a moment. “Water Balloon” was designed for the “Eco & Art Award 2014″ exhibition presented by Konica Minolta at the Konica Minolta Plaza Gallery.
