Created on Gantri
Zeppelin is created using Gantri's Table Lights Product System, which provides a standard set of components, resources and toolkit to help designers develop high-quality products easily.
In both style and innovation, Zeppelin gives a nod to the iconic Nelson Bubble Lamps made popular in 1950s. It features unique rib profiles, smooth curved surfaces and a durable, monolithic form reminiscent of the Bubble Lamp — but made sustainably and without the hefty price tag.

Zeppelin was manufactured by Gantri in San Francisco. The body of the product is constructed with our in-house 3D printing technologies and then carefully hand-finished by local craftsmen to achieve a smooth luxurious finish. High quality pre-engineered components are then assembled with the body and quality checked before they are delivered to customers.
