This Wheel’s on Fire

British design company Mathmos—creator of the original lava lamp in 1963—continues its tradition of innovative ambient lighting products at this year’s ICFF with the debut of Space Projector, a transparent or silver ABS plastic unit that projects one of nine slowly rotating graphic patterns onto a wall. “The concept is surreal wallpaper or moving artwork,” says senior sales and marketing executive Philip Rodgers. For the limited edition graphic “wheels,” Mathmos tapped designers from around the world, including Katrin Petursdottir Young of Iceland, Tina Frank of Austria, Francois Chalet of Switzerland, and the British design consultancy Two Create (whose Airswitch lamp is also produced by Mathmos).
