Baló is a delightful optical illusion. Its shade looks like a hot air balloon tethered to the base by four ropes. It gives the impression of being ready to float away any minute. Designers Mauricio Sanin and Kelly Durango enhanced this resemblance by placing its light source in the base, like the burner in the basket of a hot air balloon.
This playful light is meant to be noticed. Place it in your living room as a conversation starter for guests. Or put it on a side table for calming, ambient light while reading and relaxing. Baló works particularly well with light wood or Scandinavian design elements, but will add cheer and charm to any room.
