There’ll be no escaping the World Cup over the next couple of months and London’s Design Museum is showing its colours with a display of customised football lights. Created by product designers Rainer Spehl and Martino Gamper, each Coming Home light combines a classic 32-panel black and white football made of composite material, with an encased cold light source fitting.
