amarist studio converts the shape of projectiles into a sculptural lighting set

spanish designers from the amarist studio explore the inner beauty in the shape and design of a mortar shell with the intention to redefine its meaning and purpose. titled ‘fuego amigo’ – friendly fire – the artwork transforms the object into a peaceful set of sculptural lights.

throughout the process, amarist accurately reproduced the 80 mm mortar shell grenade –one of the most commonly used projectiles of the last century. the sculpture is made in alabaster stone and 24-karat gold plated brass, with LED interior lights enhancing the veins and texture of the stone.


each sculptural light has a dimension of 450 mm in height and 80 mm in diameter


the interior LED lights beautifully enhance the natural veins and texture of the stone
