Human Thermal Comfort

Thermal comfort is difficult to measure because it is highly subjective. It depends on the air temperature, humidity, radiant temperature, air speeds, activity rates, and clothing levels. However, each individual experiences these sensations a bit differently based on his or her physiology and state.

THE BIG BUBBLE design Alex de Witte for Dark

Every piece is a unique, mouth-blown glass bubble.
Alex : I wanted to catch beauty and imagination in the reflections of a massive big
glass object. As a child we all played with blowing soap bubbles into the sky and
wondered how our breath was captured in a transparent fragile bubble.
Won the Design District Award 2013 for best product.
Available in transparent, smoke, smoke-green, red and amber
