The Double Bubble table lamp is cast in plastic to ensure durability and uniform colour of light. It became an immediate classic following ist introduction in 2003 and formed a new territorial conquest in the lighting design field for Eero Aarnio.
The Double Bubble series of lamps is one of the most recent designs by the celebrated Finnish designer Eero Aarnio. Initial plan was to utilize glass blowing technique, but improved uniform colour of light and durability directed the designer to implement latest plastic casting-technique.
Double Bubble or Tupla Kupla - as it is know in Finnish - comes different sizes; two table lamps, one monumental standing lamp and an outdoor version. Due to curvy surface, there are three lamps fitted inside; one in each bubble and one in the leg part. The light in the largest Double Bubble is complemented by slightly stronger lamps.
The Double Bubble lamp of Eero Aarnio and Studio Aarnio is also available as floor and outdoor version.
