Mathmos LED Poplights Offer Colorful Light Under Glass
June 28th, 2008
The Poplight is the latest LED lighting fixture to come from Mathmos, the same guys responsible for the original Lava Lamp back in the 1960s.
Each Poplight is made from handblown glass and gradually fades between shades of blue, purple, violet, magenta, red, and back. The fixtures measure just a little more than 6-inches tall, making them perfect for a bookshelf or other small nook. While the LEDs are bright enough for an accent lamp, I wouldn’t try and read a book my the light of one of these.
Inside the glass shade, is an LED-illuminated plastic “bulb” which gleams with a mirrored silver coating when switched off.
If you live here in the States, you can grab the Poplight from Mathmos US for $75 each (about $88 with International shipping). If you happen to be fortunate enough to reside in Mathmos’ native UK, order from Mathmos UK for just £28 a pop.
