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."
