Put Out the Lights

Do you have a burning desire to add some hot, contemporary detail to your decor? These stylish pendant lights, crafted from spent fire extinguisher canisters, will definitely get you fired up. Artist Valentino Llegada has found beauty in the sleek form of his utilitarian materials, and he enhances it by hand painting each one in sophisticated shades of black and gray. The aluminum material is lightweight and sturdy, and its interior is left with its metallic finish, which helps reflect the light out into the room. Available in two styles - cylindrical or with rounded edges - created by using either the top or the bottom of the canister. Comes fitted with a light socket and cord, and is ready to hang with included screw hooks. Cord does not have built-in switch. Handmade in Florida. Sold individually

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Valentino Llegada

Inspired by minimalist contours and industrial sculpture, Uruguayan artist Valentino Llegada first discovered metallic structures as an Academy of Fine Arts student in Montevideo. But like many successful artists, he's learned to temper his passion with philosophy: "Finding my life's passion was not my most significant discovery," he says. "What's been most important to me has been realizing that the ego makes us believe that we are the ones who create, design and invent."

Llegada credits higher, more universal sources for his art, sharing his belief that "everything that exists has existed, and will exist in another dimension that gives those who care an opportunity to carry the prized idea out. In other words, we are just recipients as "artists," and are privileged to have an exchange with this endless, providing source."

    Comments about FIRE EXTINGUISHER PENDANT LAMPS:

    We saw these in Uncommon Goods and went to the artist's website. There he sells ones that are plain satin aluminum. We now have 4 of them over our kitchen island and they are fantastic! He was great to work with and was willing to supply different cording for ours (we wanted silver instead of black). Highly recommended!

    Valentino Llegada's handmade Fire Extinguisher Lights are a stylish and uncommon use of common materials. Do you love the lamp made from the rounded top of the fire extinguisher, the one made cylindrical bottom, or would you mix and match?

    Terri

    These are great. I have a friend who enjoys the industrial look and these would be perfect for her.

    They're unique, they're a useful item, they're attractive, and they're neat. What more could someone want?

    Really cute but overpriced. If they sold as a set at that price I would definitely buy them.

    Love them. seems like they should be $45 not $65

    Love that they are recycled but the price is a bit high.

    I like seeing new items that were created by using items that would have ended up in a ladfill. For people who like look of modern, here you go.

    Very cool looking and not too expensive for lighting fixtures. Bonus: made in Florida.

    Would love to see these in more/different colors. Black is not my style but I love the idea.

    Elaine
    Vote: Thumbs up!

    Only concern would be if the lighting were only task lighting or was it to illuminate an area such as over a kitchen counter bar? Black not too good to throw off light.

    This is awesome looking, perfect for some uncommon home decor. Does the aluminum lampshade get hot over time? That's my main concern.It's always great to see items hand-crafted in the US!

    Love the recycling. Not sure how much light they will put out. Would look great in a modern design home. Maybe a "man pad".

    Vote: Thumbs down!

    Not my style, but maybe a few more pictures would be helpful. Perhaps showing them lit up? I simply can't tell if they are supposed to be translucent or just shine light from the bottom...

    These would look perfect in an old farm house kitchen. I don't think the price is that bad. Love that they are recycled and made in USA.

    opverp[riced and awfully small for a fire extinguisher recycle.. seems asbout the size of a spray paint can....

    I think these are cool looking - love that they are recycled and made in the USA. Keeping them after ordering would depend on light output you can get from them though. Like the bottom half better, but also like a mix/match option
