Platillos Volantes
Rest Projects Friday 18 Jan 2013

'Platillos Volantes' ('Flying Saucers') is a collection of four hand spun aluminium lightshades.

The shades, measuring between 555mm and 730mm in diameter, are all spun off the same hemispherical lathe tool, then masked and wet sprayed by hand. The controlled application of the paint allows the delicate spinning lines to show through.

The shades are designed to fit straight onto a standard UK 28mm light fitting - This often removes the need for rewiring and increases accessibility for the product.

The lightshades are available to purchase online at
