Interior designer and architect by training Grégoire de Lafforest created this lamp that looks like a balloon and lights up when a bulb-like pump is squeezed.

Made of plywood of walnut, lacquered steel and blown glass, the actual lighting mechanism is hidden, making the lamp feel a little magical, as if alighted by a swift breeze. The lamp, called Olab, was created as an edition for Paris Galerie Gosserez.
