The Double Bubble table lamp was considered a modern classic soon after its introduction in 2003. The lamp is made from plastic, so that it’s as durable as possible and guarantees evenly coloured light.
Double Bubble is one of the most modern designs by famous Finnish designer Eero Aarnio and was at its time the start of Aarnio’s renewed involvement with lamp design.
The initial plan intended to manufacture the Double Bubble lamp from glass. To optimise the even light colour and durability of the lamp, Eero Aarnio however quickly turned to the most modern plastic processing methods.
To guarantee even lighting with the curved shape of the lamp, Double Bubble requires three lightbulbs:two are located in the balls at the upper end and one in the lower lamp body.
Double Bubble or Tupla Kupla, as the lamp is known in Finnish, comes in various sizes: in addition to the two table lamps, a monumental floor lamp and an XL version for outside are available.
