The Goggle D52 Wall Lamp was designed by Ross Lovegrove for the brand Luceplan. Founded in 1978, Italian brand Luceplan has become a world leader in home lighting, crafting lighting which does away with unnecessary flourishes and complexity, reducing forms to their essence. The company also pursues technical innovation, resulting in a hugely successful blend. Lovegrove is a Welsh designer who has worked on everything from Apple computers to Sony Walkmans, filling modern design museums across the world.
The Goggle D52 Wall Lamp is a characteristic creation, mixing utter simplicity with a dose of playfulness. Designed to be mounted on interior walls, the Goggle D52 Wall Lamp measures 18 x 14 x 32 cm and has an irregular lozenge shape. The diffuser has been made from polycarbonate plastic, while Lovegrove has elected to add a coloured disc to the surface. This disc has been subtly slanted downwards, resembling the look of swimming goggles - as the name suggests. Inside the casing, the lamp employs an E14/6W bulb which can be changed as needed. Casting a broad light across medium sized rooms, the lamp also changes colour slightly as users move - adding to its appeal.
