Ripple is an analogue lighting effect and not a plain lamp. The effect is jointly created by the lamp‘s simple mechanism but foremost by the room‘s quality and ambience. It works best in calm and dimmed areas with light walls. It takes some experimentation to find the optimal spot for the lamp and the suitable set-up of the lamp‘s two elements.
A beam of light projects from the lighting dome through both walls of the mouth-blown unevenly shaped projection dome that gently rotates. This creates a play of shadow and light in an ever changing, moving ripple pattern – beauty that goes beyond the material itself.
