The BALLOON lamp collection by CrousCalogero was inspired by a memory shared by several generations of adults and children. Don't you remember letting the string of a balloon slip through your fingers at some time or another?The ceiling and wall versions of BALLOON feature a stylized design. To give these pieces the ethereal appearance desired, the shade is made of satinated polyethylene, a translucent material that hides a low consumption fluorescent bulb. What's more, a fine red cable hangs subtly from the shade, which has a novel triple function as a three-position switch in the wall version (European version only): background light, pilot light and off. The pilot light (European version only) consists of a small, 0.5W LED bulb that gently lights dark spots, providing guidance and reassurance at night.The Balloon lamps have been awarded with the ADI-FAD Silver Delta Prize for the original design . This is one of Spain's most prestigious design awards, which recognises innovation, quality manufacturing and conceptual renovation and creativity.
