The Aero Lamps were originally an experimental project that began with the idea of using only using the production method of turning to create a product. This gave each model a relation to each other whilst differing in material, shape and size. Testing the limits of materials and the differences between them, pushed the project towards the final outcome. The repetition of making, and the relationship between shapes created with the same production method, meant that it was possible to make a product range that works together aesthetically as a group.

The decision to create lamps from these forms occurred organically when moulds were made out of plaster with the combination of other materials mixed in, then when the added material was burnt out they would leave cavities and perforations in the plaster allowing light to pass through. It was noted that the perforations created by the polystyrene beads allowed a small glow of light shine through, and therefore became apparent that producing lamps would utilise this process best.

The lamps hang from braided textile cables, the quality of the porcelain provides a white glossy appearance when the light is off, while craters inside the forms allows the light to glow and diffuse through holes and thinner points when illuminated
