Mathmos' Jupiter 2 was in many ways inspired by the Crestworth Galaxy featuring the fibre optics located under a safe perspex enclosure away from curious hands and is often a forgotten piece of Mathmos lighting. This wonderful lamp was directly inspired by Crestworth's Galaxy but is switches the black plastic smokey enclosure for a metal base and a clear perspex enclosure. Unlike Galaxy Jupiter 2 does not include a fan so the optics do not shimmer or move but that does not detract in any manner from the beauty of this wonderful piece of kinetic lighting.
Jupiter 2 was priced at £195 and was manufactured from polished aluminium, glass fibres, perspex dome. h:32cm w: 47cm One model: light colours: blue,red,yellow and green. Launched by Mathmos 1992 discontinued 1996. (Please see images below).
