Balloon owes elements of its form to the typical antique oil lamps and candle holders with a reflector placed behind the flame to reflect and direct the light.
A CFL reflector is situated inside the lamp's cylindrical base. The light shines upwards and enlightens the reflector, which tilts forwards, re-directing and reflecting a diffused glimmer of light.
Through its simplicity and figurative character, the lamp leaves room for associations and fantasy - is it a balloon soaring into the air, a small glowing sun, or an oversized light bulb?
