Available as pendant or table lamps, these lights are made from real beach balls. The classically colorful red, blue, yellow and white balls come flat-packed, and like the real thing, inflate for use.
Inflatable Beach Ball Lights
The hand-made art piece designed for the premium market were repeatedly sought-out by designers for beach bars and boutique hotels so Toby reworked the design so it could be used and priced for the home market.
Now, the real inflatable beach balls are specially manufactured with a transparent window and combined with a special air-tight new generation LED lighting system that results in a wonderfully whimsical light for indoor spaces. When lit they glow all around, and shine a light out through the transparent window.
“The classic beach ball is an iconic symbol that everyone loves and the light makes a really quirky and contemporary design statement” says Toby. “The original concept was so popular I wanted to find a way of making it work for everyone and after three years here it is.”
Assembly takes only a few minutes. A bicycle or similar pump is required (not supplied). It is inflated through the regular pop-out blow-hole. The pump is required for inflation to prevent misting of the window. A conversion valve is provided for the most common type of bike pump.
The light is mains powered (220V or 110V), and uses the latest generation of cold LED bulb (supplied) that is the technological and ecological successor to CFL bulbs. The replaceable bulb is extremely long life.
The Beach Ball Light is designed to hold its air indefinitely, however should it ever need a top-up, this is easily done via the blow hole.
Beach Ball Lights are available in 2 distinct versions:
PENDANT VERSION – The Ceiling / Pendant version is mains powered. It is supplied with a dimmable warm LED bulb fitted, and has a 3m / 9ft white cable that is ready to connect to your ceiling rose. These are to be fitted by an electrician, and are to be placed out of reach of children. Illumination is around 500Lmn (= 50 Watt ecquivalent).
TABLE VERSION – The Table / Floor lamp is supplied with a coloured heavy rubber ring to sit on. It is powered from a low voltage 12V transformer that plugs into the wall socket – exactly like a mobile phone charger. The cable from this in turn connects to a jack-plug soket in the back of the Beach Ball Light. A further 3m extension cable is provided so that the Beach Ball Light can be spaced further away from the wall socket. All cables are black. Illumination is around 400Lmn (= 40 Watt ecquivalent).
Price (subject to change) £100.00 – £125.00 each plus delivery. They ship worldwide.
