Date 11/2010  Type ECAL one week workshop  Professor Shay Alkalay openlink Materials balloon, helium, battery, wire, LED 

This is the result of a one-week workshop with the British designer Shay Alkanay. We were asked to do a work about ‘gravity’.

My result was a lamp, easy to build from ready-made parts, but still astonishing. Every piece has two functions: the battery is an anchor and energy source, the cable fixes the balloon to the anchor and transfers energy, the balloon is a lampshade and container for helium.
This project has been selected for Design Parade 8 at Villa Noailles in Hyères, France.
