This minimalist desktop lamp is controlled by a squeezable pump, which is often seen on horns and even classic perfume bottles. The design, titled Olab, signifies that flickering on a light is an exciting blast.
French artist Grégoire de Lafforest intended to portray a deeper meaning. The skeletal frame of the lamp holds within it a giant balloon-shaped bulb. The artistic concept here is that whenever you squeeze the rubber pump, the bulb feels the pressure and tries to escape its frame. The lamp is made of plywood, lacquered steel and blown glass. From the outside, the lamp immaculately conceals any type of electrical work, which makes it all the more intriguing, fascinating, mysterious and magical.
