Working with Spanish designer Nacho Carbonell, Formafantasma from Italy and Swedish design studio Front, Booo present a line of unconventional pendant lamps called the Booo bulbs.

Eschewing the traditional glass light bulb,  Nacho Carbonell’s Booo bulb is made from a squeezable rubber. Soft and unbreakable, its hand-made quality gives a textured surface that creates a subtle light. This is Carbonell’s first ever mass-produced product.

Designed to look like a hanging leaf, Formafantasma’s Booo bulb can be used individually, or installed in groups to create a forrest of hanging leaves. The clean cut of the design casts a patterned light around the room.

Available in large, medium or small sizes, Front’s Booo bulb is inspired by the shape of a traditional lampshade. The bulbs are enclosed structures, they have inner domes that soften the light and create a warm and pleasant ambience.
