The desire was to create a lamp which was discrete – yet also an experience. From a distance, the opal-shaped lamp resembles an illuminating frisbee. On walking past the lamp, you discover how the lamp catches the light and creates its own refractions. Like circular ripples in the water when you cast a stone into a glassy forest lake. The effect is almost magical. It leaves you with a desire to feel and touch it to understand. Because even though LP Ripls appears light and simple on the face of it, it remains elusive and hard to fathom. The fixture emits diffused light. The front consist of a concave clear front with ripples like rings in water. The ripples refract light in the front creating a subtle change of appearance depending on viewing angle. The concave form outline the refracting creating a higher intensity light towards the center fading off toward the edges. A diffuser offset sits deep in the fixture creating a sense of depth in the front. A slim housing creates the appearance of a floating disk while perforations in the opaque housing allows indirect light to create a halo around the fixture. Finish : White opal diffuser and clear reflective front. Satin matt white.

Jakob Wagner says: “At first glance, you are struck by the simplicity of the design, and you can even have 50 of these lamps installed in a single room. On closer inspection, you discover that the lamp also casts light against the wall, which has the effect of almost pulling the lamp away from it. If you study the lamp further, you will see how the wave pattern causes the light to create ‘ripples in the water’.”
