Bearable Lightness

babesta-gummi-1-by-tribeca-citizenHere’s something you don’t see every day: Hanging from the ceiling of Babesta Cribz is a light fixture made of 5,000 acrylic Gummi Bears, hand-strung in the shape of a sphere. It was made by three guys who form a collective called Jellio (they’re the ones behind the Gummi Bear lamps that Babesta also sells). The price is $9,500, and only ten will get made—and each one is one-of-a kind. If you’re walking down Warren Street, check it out—it really is amazing. Unless you’re stoned, because remember, they’re acrylic.




  1. An incredible work of art! Definitely worth a visit.

  2. It’s ALL about the gummi bears these days… even though, these are not eatable, but I love this gummy bear-inspired jewelry:
