Mathmos has designed Tumbler, a portable and rechargeable brick-shaped light that changes colour when tilted or flipped. Tumbler, which will be launched at September’s 100% Design Show, comes in three versions. It is easily charged up, has a splash-proof seal and can be used indoors or outdoors. The lamp incorporates pipe light technology and LEDs and can be set either to pulse or remain static in one colour choice. Priced at £39.95, Tumbler aims to exploit the fashion for colour lighting so far seen in hotels and retail.
A highlight of the retail concept is a “trial space” resembling a basketball court, which features the brand’s manifesto in Arabic.
