The 'Surface Tension Lamp' is a sleek, bubble-blowing light fixture that will never have one set shape; it was designed by Swedish design group Front for Booo! Studio.

For Milan Design Week 2012, Booo! Studio requested designers to create nifty lamps that cost under $100 to assemble, and the result was immaculate. This special edition lamp uses an ephemeral bubble as its focus point. The other design by Front is the 'Lampshade Bulb,' which takes inspiration from an LED bulb design.

The bubbles for the 'Surface Tension Lamp' slowly inflate, pop and then repeat. This is just another example of a quirky design that offers functionality and entertainment.
