Airstar Launches BULBS, a New Range of Giant Bulb Shaped Lighting Balloons for the Event Industry

Airstar, the inventor and world leader of lighting balloons for the event industry, has announced the release of its newest lighting balloons inspired by iconic bulb shapes: Meet BULBS. This new range boasts a vintage and industrial look to produce a truly unique atmosphere for any event.

The inspiration behind BULBS came from Pierre Chabert, president and director of innovation at Airstar. The BULBS are named after great inventors and are inspired by vintage bulb shapes appreciated by the general public and the Airstar network.

“The event market constantly needs to renew itself to provide new ideas and solutions for its customers and the general public,” explains Airstar sales director, Xavier Ponson. “Traditional light bulbs are popular shapes that you can find in most design stores and interior decoration outlets nowadays. We believe it can have a similar success for events, so we decided to turn it into an Airstar innovation.”

With their original shapes, BULBS replicate giant models of traditional bulbs, while bringing the highest quality thanks to Airstar’s textile craftsmanship. BULBS can be laid out on the floor or hung from ceilings, they can be used indoors and outdoors (IP54 rating) and ensure both a unique and trendy decor. Available in eight different shapes and sizes, ranging from 1m60 for the smallest model to 4m30 for the largest, they are the perfect solution to any needs and environments. BULBS are equipped with a built-in fan allowing to keep a perfect shape. Installation time takes between 15 and 40 minutes in total depending on the size of the model.

BULBS are fully customisable thanks to various embedded LED light options, as they were designed to host different light sources already available in three others products from the Airstar event range: the Crystal RGB (colour LED), the Crystal Dynamic White (white LED) and the Crystal RGBW (white and colour LED). They can also be connected via DMX and controlled manually to create a one-of-a-kind light show.

The LED technology offers a lifespan of over 50,000 hours while reducing the power consumption (80W to 300W depending on the models). They are able to operate between 100V to 240V, 50/60Hz.
