Alex de Witte and Studio Job have collaborated for Chamber to make two special editions of “The Big Bubble”, which was originally conceived while blowing bubbles. Aside from wanting to capture the same fluid reflection, De Witte wanted to convey a sense of weightlessness and ephemerality. In contrast, Studio Job make monumental objects cast in bronze. Their stand-made from patinated, polished bronze appears immovable. These differences offer enough points of contact for a surprising and exciting exchange of ideas. When a bubble comes into contact with a surface, it usually takes a second before it bursts. The designers have stalled this moment, with an unexpected result: a light object that takes after an archetypal oil lamp.
