Glo-Ball Ceiling

c. 1998

by Jasper Morrison
for Flos

The Glo-Ball Ceiling is a part of the iconic Glo-Ball family designed by Jasper Morri­son. Illu­mi­nat­ing the other­world­li­ness of the night, the Glo-Ball series was created to resem­ble the soft and serene glow of a full moon. Its shape invokes the radiant calm of a full moon. The Glo-Ball C’s diffuser is made of exter­nally acid-etched, hand-blown, flashed opaline glass and a die-cast aluminum threaded ring nut with alodine plating finish. The lamp includes a 30% fiber­glass rein­forced injec­tion-molded polyamide ceiling fitting and a grey-painted die-case.

Glo-Ball Ceiling is avail­able in two models: a small, 13” diam­e­ter C1 version and a large, 17.7” diam­e­ter C2 version.
