Lighting and balloons can help to transform a space for a festive party, but why not just combine the two with the Balloon Lamp? Unlike similar lights that have mimicked the look and shape of the inflated decor such as the Estiluz Balloon Light, Bound Lamp and Blown Up Lamp, the Balloon Lamp involves real balloons.

Designed by Kouichi Okamoto, the assembly of the Balloon Lamp is as, well, blowing up a balloon (which can be harder than it looks sometimes). It comes with a high-intensity LED light, two Li-Ion batteries with 100 hours of illumination and two standard white balloons. Nevertheless, people can use their own. It also includes a hook so that a person can hang the Balloon Lamp wherever they please.
