Scotland Rugby GiftRugby Ball Light by Globall
Designing the perfect Scotland Rugby Gift
The Rugby Ball Light is an exclusive rugby ball shaped lamp for an office, den or bedroom. An attractive gift for the rugby fan in your life. The light can be used anywhere inside; while reading or working, as a night light or a decorative highlight whether on or off.
It is a replica of the Gilbert Rugby Ball used by international rugby players. The 4-piece construction duplicates the structure of a size five rugby ball and reflects the ellipse trim colours and team logo.
The Scotland Rugby Ball Light is an official licensed product of the SRU & Gilbert Rugby.
The Thistle is the Scottish national flower, and also the symbol of the Scotland national rugby union team. According to legend, the ‘Guardian Thistle’ played its part in defence of Scotland against a night attack by Norwegian Vikings, one of whom let out a yell of pain when he stepped barefoot on a thistle, alerting the Scottish defenders.
The Scottish rugby first played in 1871 when they beat England in the first international rugby union match at Raeburn Place. Scotland competed in the Five Nations from the inaugural tournament in 1883, winning it 22 times, including 8 joint titles. They retain the Five Nations title having won the last ever championship in 1999. In 2000 the competition accepted a sixth competitor, Italy, forming the Six Nations. Since this change, Scotland has yet to win the competition. Their best Rugby World Cup finish came in 1991, where they lost to the All Blacks in the third-place play-off.
Scotland has an intense rivalry with the English national team. They compete annually for the Calcutta Cup. Each year, this fixture is played as part of the Six Nations, with Scotland having won the cup in 2018.
Scotland’s women have appeared in five World Cups since their debut in 1994. From 1993-2020 they have played 174 internationals winning 41% of matches.
How we manufacture the perfect Scotland Rugby Gift
Creating curved products is always a challenge, but for the Rugby Ball Light, it was vital to duplicate the size and shape of a professional ball in the final manufactured light. It was essential to maintain a premium feel to reflect the quality of the product and the pedigree of the brands it represents
Designed to be uncomplicated, the components of the Rugby Ball Light are easy for the factory to assemble, lightweight, stable and straight forward to use. The light is a bespoke design (not just logos stuck on to an existing product) that creates an ambient light suitable for both office and home. It adheres to EU safety standards and uses the latest low energy bulbs, ensuring hours of low-cost, low-emissions use.

Steve Hicks The Designer Talks About The Perfect Scotland Rugby Gift
ED: Do you play rugby?
ED: Where did the idea for Rugby Ball Light come from?
ED: You're an event and exhibition designer. How have you found the process of designing and developing a consumer product?
ED: Who helped you develop the Scotland Rugby Gift?
We worked hard on the precise tooling required to create the radius edge between the sections. I insisted that this feature was vital to give the Light an authentic appearance. The factory and UK agent have been great too; streamlining the design for mass production and in ensuring the Light is compliant with all the legislation. Gilbert and the RFU have been a great help unlocking the world of brand licensing. The RFU light is official licensed merchandise of both brands.
