Giant Turned Paper Pendant Lights in Manchester Wahaca

I was asked to make four bespoke pendant lights for the newly opened Wahaca restaurant in Manchester, you can spot them hanging in this video posted on the restaurants blog. 

The lights were made entirely from paper and cardboard, they weighed in at about 2kg each and were around 3 times the size of one of my normal paper pendants! It was a challenging commission due to the size of each light and the amount of time that was spent laminating and shaping each one. I'm yet to visit the restaurant but I'm excited to see them and of course to eat there...
