Here's some text from Hubert:


Spinning Light, a collaboration with Scandinavian lighting manufacturers
Unique Copenhagen.

Spinning Lights are inspired by the process of metal spinning and intend to emphasise this technique, utilising aesthetic references to toy spinning tops. The lamps consist of a lacquered spun aluminium shade, counterbalanced with an injection moulded PVC fitting to extend the transition between shade
and cable.

Spinning Light Specification
Large Ø 400mm, Small Ø 240mm
Spun aluminium with gloss lacquered exterior finish in purple, black or white

    Great looking finish! What gauge aluminum?

    It would be very interesting to know about the light technology that is supposed to be used with these luminaries. Considering the momentary banning of incandescent lamps I was only wondering what these beautys may look like with a compact fluorescent poking out?
