Pinchable Rubber Pendant Lamps
The Booo Bulb Swaps Out Fragile Glass in Favor of Flexible Material

Padding in packaging is necessary in order to keep incandescent lightbulbs protected from impact and consequent breaks, but the Booo Bulb does not need any extra buffering.

This unique lamp has been manufactured with rubber that simply squishes and misshapes when any weight presses against it. Nacho Carbonell’s design turns the notion of a lighting object into one that is tactile as well as visual. One might feel compelled to pinch and squeeze it and feel its warmth in his hands.

The Booo Bulb’s fixture makes it compatible with a number of electrical hookups, and it can be beneath a lampshade or left uncovered. Because the material is thick and translucent enough to lessen the intensity of light on its own, the product can function as its own diffuser.
