Design by Ross Lovegrove, 1998.
Reflections for a wall lamp inspired by the shape of swimming goggles and the mirror treatment of sports eye-wear lenses. Goggle is an elliptical lamp in Opaline polycarbonate that can be fixed to the wall at a normal or tilted angle, singly or in rows, to create a lively cluster of lights.
The color variation of Goggle's flat surface is created solely by the different angle from which it is observed.
The lamp's color changes are in fact caused by an iridescent film that exploits in-mold decoration technology to become an integral part of the diffuser.
Dimensions: 7"W X 12.5"H X 5.5"
Lamp Type: incandescent, compact fluorescent
Listing: Title 24
Models: 1D5200000531 1D520FEL0531

Luceplan was founded in 1978 by Italian architects Riccardo Sarfatti, Sandra Severi, and Paolo Rizzatto to custom design lighting fixtures for the commercial and industrial sectors in Europe. But with designs that also appealed to the residential market, Luceplan has created products with this market in mind since 1981. Merging new design and technological solutions with enduring style, quality, function, and efficiency, Luceplan products are extremely popular in Europe and have been available in the U.S. since 1978.
Beautiful light and effects, not the best materials.
The goggle is a nice 'fun' fixture for a young hip home. The fixture is not small so check your dimensions if used in a staircase. The dichroic coating changes color with the viewing angle and is a nice detail touch, the fixture body is a translucent plastic and does not feel as sturdy as a glass body. Great fixture for the price!
