The lights are made from CNC machined aluminium and are fused using the same adhesives that hold aircraft wings together. The intense colour is imparted through the stove-enamelling process. Each diffuser is bespoke hand-blown glass. The light components are fully modular. They interconnect easily creating opportunites for diverse architectural and sculptural lighting.
