Emmanuelle Moureaux is the designer of this coca cola bubbles installation; this piece is to rejuvenate the coca cola heritage glass created by Thomas Meyerhoffer.

The installation consists of 800 acrylic spheres that are used in the representation of the fizz. Within each sphere are tiny bubbles that when light hits them it is reflected causing them to sparkle.

The idea behind the work is to invoke a sense of emotion; memory or feeling that can be associated with the tasting of the beverage. When seen from a distance, due to the positioning of the glass below the sphere, which is hanged in an undulating waveform of varying heights, this gives the impression of the fizz spraying from the glass at force causing them to disperse. This is aided by the funneling illusion given by the layout of the bubbles.
