Barcelona-based product designer Jordi Canudas came up with a unique way to color a glass lampshade: "Dipping the globes in paint [and] drying each coating before applying a new one to create a layered color lampshade," he writes.
"[The] manufacturing process begins by dipping the shade into liquid paint several times," writes Dipping Light manufacturer Marset. "Thus, each Dipping Light is different and unique because it depends on the paint mixture, drying and atmospheric conditions at the time. These factors will determine that the color stripes will have different sizes and textures in each of them."
By dipping again and again, he's able to get delineated gradations. The end results are pretty wonderful:
The lamps retail from €317 (USD $345).
