Beach Balls are a universal symbol, a cultural architype, and Beach Ball Lights appeal on a instinctive level bringing happiness and healing to all!
This project explores the ambiguities and coincidences around objects, gently exploring boundries to playfully pick at the perceptions of things. Beach Ball Lights do somehow have resonace as artefacts: They seem to really 'make sense', and through that connection they add personality and life to a space.
These are custom made in a beach ball factory, but the standard process has been altered with the addition of a transparent window to one side, and an extra screw valve through which our air-tight lighting element pases before inflationWhether as a single statement piece, or as a large cluster, put some real sunshine into your world with our unique Beach Ball Lights.
The Table / Floor lamp is supplied with a coloured heavy rubber ring to sit on. It is powered from a low voltage 12V transformer that plugs into the wall socket - exactly like a mobile phone charger. The cable from this in turn connects to a jack-plug soket in the back of the Beach Ball Light. A further 3m extension cable is provided so that the Beach Ball Light can be spaced further away from the wall socket. All cables are black. Illumination is around 400Lmn (= 40 Watt ecquivalent).
The Ceiling / Pendant version is mains powered. It is supplied with a dimmable warm LED bulb fitted, and has a 3m / 9ft white cable that is ready to connect to your ceiling rose. These are to be fitted by an electrician, and are to be placed out of reach of children. Illumination is around 500Lmn (= 50 Watt ecquivalent).
