Continuing with the studio's nature inspired designs, the Rain lamp uses water and an intricately designed pump system to create a shimmering, ripple effect. The inherent shape of the globe acts as a magnifying lens that projects onto the surface below. LED technology allows for the mixing of light and water in ways that have never before been possible, in a design that is safe, compact and durable. Estimated to last over 100,000 hours, the LED bulb is both stunningly bright and economically efficient. A hidden pump circulates water from the pool and releases droplets that fall around the bulb. As the droplets fall, the light reflects downwards displaying a mesmerizing, rippling dance.
Using a micro-peristaltic pump, a single droplet can be precisely timed to drop when required. However, the real magic happens when three droplets are simultaneously released. Ripples of each droplet collide creating a series of constructive and destructive interferences, a momentary condition in which the ripples bounce off of each other. This is displayed in the projected light below as beautiful patches of light and dark patterns. Available in two versions Clear & Glow:
- Clear, our original Rain Lamp, a clear globe allows the light to project through the rippling water creating patterns on the floor below and ceiling above.
- Glow, a new version of the Rain Lamp, a more subtle movement. The frosted white finish of the globe is the canvas on which the ripples are internally projected.
