Torafu Architects collaborated with a glass artist for their latest design adventure. “Water Balloon” is a magical light installation made from 36 pendant lights shaped like raindrops. The handcrafted, unique lamps feature tiny air bubbles that help diffuse the light.

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.
