a bulb, a cylindrical base, and a thin diffuser leaning over it.

Here is how designer describes the piece:

The lamp's light source is situated inside a cylindrical base. Light shines upwards and lights the reflector, which tilts forwards, re-directing and reflecting a diffused glimmer of light.

If you look at the lamp full face, it resembles an air balloon (hence the name). It is made from lacquered aluminium and plastic and is available in white or yellow.
