Mathmos Space Projector | Projecting beautiful ambient light.

The Mathmos Space Projector was created in the later part of the 1990s and has been a very successful Mathmos product. Space Projector is an oil wheel projector perfect for home, parties and just wonderful to look into. Space Projector can project onto a wall, ceiling or even the floor. Over the years Space Projector has been launched in so many different finishes but the core product has remained the same.

Space Projector is a classic Mathmos piece. In the 2000s, Mathmos created the Graphic artwork wheels in limited editions by cutting edge graphic designers. These created a whole new dimension into the Space Projector and what it could possibly do. These were exhibited in the Mathmos' showroom on Old Street as Surreal Wallpaper and at various tradeshows around the world including the ICFF in New York.

Below one can see a Mathmos Space Projector Upgrade pack from an early Mathmos 2000s catalog.

Mathmos Space Projector | An example of a Mathmos Limited Edition Graphic Pack.

Below one can see a Mathmos Limited Edition Graphic pack in this case, Planes by Two Create. The designers of Mathmos' Airswitch TC and Melt candle holders. Each graphic pack comes in a slide case with instructions and four colour slides which can be placed inside to alter the colour of the projector. These small slides are placed into the slide unit which can be found on the side of the Space Projector. The graphics are laser cut from sheet metal and placed on the inside of the wheel. I purchased this slide at the Mathmos Boutique in London when seeing it projecting onto the ceiling of the mini shop.
