The unevenly shaped glass diffuser of Poetic Lab's Ripple Light creates a play of shadow and light on the surrounding walls.

Originally showcased as a concept at Spazio Rossanna Orlandi last year, the design was spotted by Viennese chandelier company, Lobmeyr who have now put the piece into production in two sizes.

Set in a brass base with a rotating motor, the halogen light source is encased within a small mouth-blown glass diffuser that is in turn housed within a larger one. The uneven, layered glass throws out beautiful patterns onto the surrounding walls.

About the manufacturer: Founded in 1823, J. & L. Lobmeyr is a glassware company from Vienna, Austria. Founder Josef Lobmeyr, exclusive supplier to the Imperial court, invested and developed new designs and manufacturing techniques. His successor, Stefan Rath, looked to the Wiener Werkstätte architects and artists for further inspiration in developing more progressive designs for service sets, decorative figures and glass chandeliers. Today the company is still a family owned business, creating mouth-blown crystal glasses and lighting designs, some of which are housed in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, and the Neue Galerie in New York.
