Lighten Up with Balloons Lighting by Dan Yeffet and Lucie Koldova

Back in 2010, designer Dan Yeffet and Lucie Koldova (also known as JellyLab) began collaborating on lighting and furniture designs that have since earned them a reputation for edgy innovation with brooding originality. Since then, they've produced various pieces of supple glass, brilliant colors and natural materials that are summed up in their spectacular Balloons lighting for Brokis.

The Bulbous, Glowing Balloons Lamps by Dan Yeffet and Lucie Koldova for Brokis

The Balloons lighting is a collection of simple lights that Czech manufacturer, Brokis, is creating using large, invisible, seemingly inflatable glass structures for the table or floor. In a total of three different models, the series of lamps come with what looks to be a floating lampshade with a delicate bulb within. Reminiscent of a ship floating in a bottle, the glamorous red and white reflectors within (as shown) are contained on the lower third of the Balloons' oblong structure.

When asked to define his work, Yeffet consistently responds by saying “definitions are our limits; I would like to consider myself as an explorer and adventurer." In more than a few very realistic ways, this Jerusalem-born, Amsterdam-based designer has proved that his life and designs are all part of a journey.

Sheer and glassy with a dash of spunky color and light, the Balloons lighting by Dan Yeffet and Lucie Koldova would liven up any desk or living room with sparkle and shine.

About the Designer: Dan Yeffet's studio known as JellyLab was established by the Israel-born designer in 2003. Since then, he has come up with various lighting, furniture pieces and products that have grown into textiles, research and development and other odd projects to keep it interesting. His works are shown in various museums throughout the world, but are most notably part of the New Design Museum in Chicago, Moss in New York City, and the FNAC Foundation in Paris.
