Glass Balloon Ceiling and Wall Lamps Add A Festive Touch.





This collection of ceiling and wall light fixtures that look just like balloons were designed by Boris Klimek for Brokis.





"Memory" lights are inspired by memories of childhood and are made of opal glass, come in eight different colors, as a ceiling mount or wall mount, and in three sizes.




The hanging cord is used for turning on and off lights. The range of colors create different interior atmospheres suitable for anything from a child's room to a formal dinner party.
